Who bears the burden

Our collection of essays sets the practical challenges of child poverty and debt’s impact on children into a theological context. Reflecting on these issues in the light of how we understand God raises some important questions.

This collection offers some theological reflections about the impact of debt on children and explores the ways in which churches and charities can respond. The essays remind us that, for Christians, words are never enough: they need to take flesh in lives and communities transformed by God’s justice and his love.
