This book considers the bold aspirations for the future outlined at the beginning of the 21st century by the United Nations – the vision of a better future for the developing world, formulated as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Much was promised. Many promises made, however, have not been kept. The original goal for the achievement of the MDGs was 2015, yet as that year looms before us, it is increasingly clear that there is still a long way to go. Undaunted and writing from her own Christian perspective, Barbara Butler also uses stories, poems, images and points of reflection from other world faiths to urge us not to become complacent in our efforts to bring the ideals of the MDGs to fruition.

Review:

‘This book brings out the great work which has been done towards reaching the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, but it also raises many areas of concern and the need for future work beyond 2015 in every area.’ Our future work calls for respect and listening to the voice of materially poor people, who have so much to give. The campaign Beyond 2015 begins
here. (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)
