Jenna Lucado on The Poverty and Justice Bible:

“But the minute I opened it, I realized that the very intention of the publishers is to rescue the Bible back from the prosperity preachers, flashy televangelists, and jingoistic pastors that have hijacked it.”

Tony Campolo on The Poverty and Justice Bible:

“Here’s proof that faith without a commitment to justice for the poor is a sham, because it ignores the most explicit of all the social concerns of Scripture.”
