How do Christians respond to the urgent needs and issues facing the globe while avoiding a kind of “poverty tourism” or “slacktivism” in our response to suffering, particularly far from home? How do we respond authentically and effectively in our strategies for solidarity with the poor and the underprivileged? Using personal anecdotes as well as philosophical and theological reflection, Donald and James Dunson offer their personal experience and insights from philosophy, theology and social science in a text perfect for use with high school and college classrooms, immersion groups, parish study groups, and service-learning programs.
