Barna Group, in partnership with Compassion International, has conducted an extensive study of Americans’ understanding of anti-poverty work, from their priorities and suggested solutions to their giving and volunteering habits. Further, the research examines how pastors and practicing Christians embrace a biblical calling to care for the poor in their programs, sermons and daily lives.
This report is a comprehensive and innovative overview of U.S. engagement with poverty alleviation, presenting brand new Barna data as well as:
- Infographics detailing Americans’—and particularly Christians’—responses to poverty
- Analysis of how demographics, faith, ideology and even emotions influence participation
- An introduction to the Poverty Action Types, classifying various approaches to support
- Expert interviews and practical tips for applying the data
The Good News About Global Poverty encourages leaders and members of the U.S. Church to imagine a future in which the number of people living in extreme poverty continues to decrease—and dares them to ask how they can personally play a part in that effort.
