Give Us This Day: A Lutheran Proposal for Ending World Hunger.

Give Us This Day: A Lutheran Proposal for Ending World Hunger. By Craig L. Nessan (Fortress, $9.99). N., professor and Dean at Wartburg Theological Seminary and a book review editor for Currents, offers an important addition to the "Lutheran Voices" series of Fortress. N. notes perceptively: "If, however, we are to begin to comprehend the dynamics that lead to terrorism, we need to pay attention to the disparity in our world between rich and poor that gives rise to anti-Western ideology." N. urges that the ending of hunger become a matter of status confessionis and pledges to donate all royalties from this book to Bread for the World and the ELCA World Hunger Program. A great resource for an adult forum. RWK
