David Beckmann’s ‘Exodus from Hunger’ Now Available as eBook

Washington, DC, March 2, 2011

Exodus from Hunger: We Are Called to Change the Politics of Hunger, the powerful and hopeful new book by David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World and 2010 World Food Prize laureate, is now available as an eBook at Amazon.com.  

“I’m very excited that more readers will have access to the book,” said Beckmann. “If we are truly going to end hunger in our time, we need to engage and connect with Christians everywhere.” 

Also available is a new Exodus from Hunger study guide for individuals, groups, and churches. The guide helps readers explore faith in action through political participation. “This book is designed to help spiritually-grounded people be effective leaders in achieving changes through U.S. politics that would dramatically reduce hunger and poverty in our country and around the world,” added Beckmann. 

Exodus from Hunger provides information about Bread for the World’s history and mission, as well as the larger context of world hunger. Beckmann’s insistence that people of faith and faith organizations involve themselves in the U.S. political system offers great opportunity for groups to discuss their personal and shared understandings of faith and politics. 

The eBook will soon be available at Barnes & Noble, Christian book distributors, and other eBook retailers.

Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation's decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.
