"In straightforward, biblically-based terms, Craig Nessan tackles the confessional challenge of 'screaming on behalf of the hungry' in order to stir up the complacency typical of North American Christians. His voice joins those of others in Reformed, Lutheran and other churches, especially in the global South, who are calling resistance to the hunger-causing forces of economic globalization a basic issue of faith."
— Karen Bloomquist, Lutheran World Federation, Geneva, Switzerland
"In Give Us This Day Nessan provides an urgent wake-up call for our church and presents a forceful argument for American Lutherans to ponder: that we who are fed with the Bread of Life and who have more daily bread than we need cannot walk blithely 'on the other side of the road.' This is not a book to read if you are comfortable-and want to stay that way! But it is one to read if you seek to be faithful."
— Lita Brusick Johnson, ELCA World Hunger Program, Chicago, Illinois
"Nearly one billion of our fellow human beings are hungry: Nessan hears in this situation a scream that should interrupt our ecclesial business-as-usual. He argues that the ending of world hunger is a real possibility. If the Lutheran World family could evoke the ethical use of status confessionis in 1977 to end apartheid in South Africa, the call to end hunger in the world is even more pressing today."
— Peter Kjeseth, Professor of New Testament Emeritus, Fish Hock, South Africa
