I also had an issue with the author's use of Scripture. I felt that some of his usage was out of context and it sometimes seemed like he was reaching to make a point. It was unnecessary there is plenty of Scripture that proved his point without him using it out of context.
Regardless of the author's serious lack of writing ability he did make some great points and I learned some important things, like that a child dies every 5 seconds from hunger or related causes, that the resources to help the hungry and sick in developing countries is available but just not being directed correctly, and that the American Church is wealthy and has the funds to feed the hungry themselves.
You know, it's not Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie's job to help these people it's the church's job. I am afraid for the judgement God must have in store for our greed and lack of compassion!
I would recommend reading just the parts of the book that tell the facts, in other words skim and skip the author's life story. Then read the back section telling specific things that you can do right now to fight world hunger.
