This article is the first in a series of three on the concept of poverty. The product of a series of seminars sponsored by the Social Sciences Division at Dordt College, the earlier articles defined poverty, introduced related Biblical concepts, and discussed the role of the state. For reference, see: Jasper Lesage, "Justice for the Poor: The Political Problem of Poverties," Pro Rege (14,2: December, 1985), p. 2-15; and Fred De Jong, "The Challenge of Poverty to the Reformed Community," Pro Rege (14,4: June, 1986), pp. 2-8.
