Description of Evicted by Matthew Desmond PDF
“Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City” takes people into some of the poorest neighbourhoods of America and what it means to be evicted. Matthew Desmond is the author of this book. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in poverty and its domino effect on daily life. Although centred on housing and how lack of access to adequate affordable housing can be the root cause of poverty, it’s really a case study in the daily struggle to simply survive that those stuck in poverty face and how our difficult it is to climb out. Matthew Desmond has given us a treasure of real research on what evictions are doing to people and to the soul of our nation.
He weaves the heart-wrenching stories of several people through the book, detailing their troubles, trials, and evictions. Every Pastor should read this book. We say that, because those of us who proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, should also remember that the pains of poverty are neither simple nor undefeatable. To be sure, we must care for the spiritual needs of all people, but we should also care about, and do what we can to care for, the physical needs, as well, starting with decent housing. Desmond offers some public policy suggestions in the book, especially in the epilogue. Some of these may be considered too radical for some people, but at the very least, they should serve to spur a wider and deeper discussion.
