BHS 350 Shock Poverty
Shock Poverty is defined as instantaneous in its occurrence and devastating in its impact. Shock Poverty can be viewed through two lenses: the global and the personal. What leads to each? How do they impact each other? Poverty is a major theme in Christian Scripture and it is on that base that poverty in the modern world will be examined. In class, through readings and reflection, we will consider the impact of poverty in our world, we will address the question of poverty elimination and consider the root causes of poverty.
