Why do some societies thrive and others perpetually struggle? How can we alleviate poverty most effectively and help underdeveloped nations grow strong and self-sufficient? Dr. Wayne Grudem will address these questions as he discusses his new book, The Poverty of Nations. In this important new work, Dr. Grudem, a theologian, partners with economist Dr. Barry Asmus to find a "sustainable solution" to global poverty. At a time when there is so much need and also so much misinformation about how to help the poor, join us for a presentation that will bring clarity and practical help to people who so desperately need it.

He received a B.A. from Harvard University, an M.Div. and a D.D. from Westminster Seminary, Philadelphia, and a Ph.D. (in New Testament) from the University of Cambridge, England.
