In the ancient heart of Christianity is a deep longing for God's reversal of rich and poor. Its depiction of "the righteous poor and oppressive rich" and God's preferential option for "the least of these" continues to represent something new, countercultural, and strange, both in ancient Rome and today.
Author Miguel Escobar grounds the discussion of wealth and poverty in the teachings of Jesus, weaving in the words of early church leaders and his own personal experience.
The Unjust Steward presents a compelling case for a profound overhaul in the way the church and its people value the poor and transform into servants of God instead of stewards of wealth.
