About the Book

“God is moving in our time to end hunger, and we are invited to be part of this great liberation.” —David Beckmann

It is within the United States’ technical and financial power to help end hunger in our lifetime, if we set our hearts and minds to the task.

In fact, contrary to what many people believe, the world has made great progress against hunger and poverty over the last several decades. But too often the binding constraint is a simple lack of political will. As a result, one of the most powerful ways to effect change is often the most neglected—political advocacy.



David Beckmann discusses Exodus from Hunger

In his powerful and hopeful new book, David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World and winner of the 2010 World Food Prize, looks at the causes of hunger, presents case studies of countries that have made great strides against it, and puts a human face on the problem by sharing stories of people who are, quite simply, hungry every day.

The problems can seem overwhelming, but Beckmann lays out a clear and workable plan for effectively using political channels to make great progress.

Beckmann not only challenges us to get involved, he shows us how.
