Long Description

"Those who wish to implement a Biblically based program of charity in a church, private association, or family should make use of the single most helpful work on the subject: George Grant's Bringing in the Sheaves: Transforming Poverty into Productivity."

David Chilton, Author of Productive Christians in an Age of Guilt-Manipulators

"The problem of most so-called programs against poverty is that they promote socialism and thus spread famine and despair. Bringing in the Sheaves, by contrast, is an inspiring practical catalog of private solutions to the problem of poverty amidst American plenty."

George Gilder, Author of Wealth and Poverty

"Bringing in the Sheaves is an important book for Christian understanding of the legitimate role of government. George Grant shows us the Biblical framework for charity and compassion in helping the poor. Grant's story is a must reading for the real Christian."

Walter E. Williams, Ph.D./John M. Olin, Distinguished Professor of Economics, George Mason University

"I believe that Bringing in the Sheaves answers questions and provides detailed instructions for Christians who have a genuine concern for the poor and needy. It is simply a book whose time has come.

Dr. D. James Kennedy, Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

"From the rest of us, the poor need less talking and more doing. This emphasis makes Bringing in the Sheaves an important work. It will inspire many, especially those who take their strongest signals from the Biblical vision. It may be one of those books that makes the world a better place for a great many people."

Michael Novak, Author of The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism

Inside Flap

America's war on poverty is a dismal failure. Federally funded welfare programs have become an incessant reminder that gross mismanagement, fiscal irresponsibility, misappropriated authority, and escalating calamity are the inevitable results of a society that attempts to solve complex human problems apart from the clear instruction of Scripture.
The Biblical mandate is to care for the poor, the oppressed, and the disenfranchised. The Biblical mandate is to take the salve of gospel love to the stranger, the hungry, and the misbegotten.
Rev. Grant knows the dismal failures and the Biblical solutions. He believes the Bible and the blueprint it offers can transform poverty into productivity. Bringing in the Sheaves is not just another book on poverty. It is a comprehensive and practical program designed for families, churches, and private enterprises to step in and do the hard work of securing social justice in our time.
The book is filled with detailed steps of action that can be immediately enacted without access to vast amounts of time, money, space, skills, or resources. In other words, Bringing in the Sheaves, unlike most other books on poverty, is not primarily theory. It is primarily practice. Biblical practice.
"He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, but he who is gracious to the needy honors Him" (Proverbs 14:31, NASB).
