"I was hungry and you gave me food . . ." (Matthew 25:35)
"Jesus taught us that how we treat the least among us is how we treat him. 'It was me,' Jesus says very directly. Everett, a respected advocate for the hungry, does what few do well: he connects faith to public policy."
--Jim Wallis, New York Times bestselling author of America's Original Sin; president of Sojourners; editor in chief of Sojourners magazine
"Nothing beats the influence of a great story, and Everett has a powerful one to tell. His insights into the issues of poverty and hunger, his journey to the founding of the Texas Hunger Initiative, and his combination of humility and faithfulness make him a captivating author."
--Ambassador Tony P. Hall
"A call to action for one of the most pressing issues facing our nation. In one of the most polarizing eras in our history, Everett points us toward unity for the common good. May it be so!"
--Frank Wolf, former member of the US House of Representatives
"This is a must-read, and my hope is that we all allow it to speak to us, to challenge us--despite our many different walks of life, political persuasions, and perspectives--to participate together in 'bending our universe towards justice.'"
--Heather Reynolds, Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities, University of Notre Dame
"This book is Everett at his best. Part prophetic call to action, part how-to manual--with plenty of encouragement as we face the challenges ahead--it is deeply theological, profoundly practical, and intensely hopeful."
--Victor J. Hinojosa, Honors Program, Baylor University
"If it feels like the solutions to hunger and poverty have always seemed to elude, it won't feel that way after you've read this book. It is a blueprint for a more inclusive, prosperous, and compassionate America."
--Billy Shore, founder and executive chair of Share Our Strength
"Everett's book will appeal to Christians looking to give back to their community, as well as any reader interested in the plight of America's poor."--Publishers Weekly
