In Children of the Light, Violino offers a biographical reflection on the faith life of Bread’s president, Rev. David Beckmann. He gives a short history of Bread -- from its humble beginnings to the dramatic progress that has been made against hunger, due in part to the committed advocacy of its members.
Zealous Love introduces readers to eight of the world’s most pressing challenges: human trafficking, unclean water, refugees, hunger, lack of education, creation degradation, HIV/AIDS, and economic inequality. Beckmann contributes to the hunger section of the book, urging readers to call on our nation’s decision makers to pass laws that are more fair and compassionate for hungry people. “God’s grace in Jesus shapes our lives,” Beckmann writes. “It moves us to reach out to others in love and seek justice where human dignity is at stake.”
