Good News for the poor is at the heart of the Gospel and so often we are overwhelmed by the poverty in this world and doubt that any one person can make a difference.

This book suggests practical steps that individuals can take to make a difference, from praying, to learning the facts, to giving, to writing letters, to recycling your glasses. It tells you all about the Millennium Development Goals agreed in 2000 and is full of fascinating facts and stories from around the world.

It is designed for private reading and reflection as well as for study groups and there is material for worship too. The Revd Angus Ritchie from St Paul’s Institute visited St Matthew's during Lent 2006 to speak to us about these issues and outlined three simple ways in which each of us can make a difference: by connecting, contributing and campaigning.

Broaden your horizons and make a difference to the poor by reading this book and letting it change your life and theirs.
