It's a terrific book - originally Jayakumar's PhD thesis which was turned into a book some time ago, then updated last year for this revised edition. A new edition was done as the old one completely sold out. It is a somewhat scholarly but readable treatment of the whole issue of poverty and the Christian response to it.
