Zondervan has released the new book From Dependence to Dignity: How to Alleviate Poverty through Church-Centered Microfinance, authored by Professor of Economics & Community Development Dr. Brian Fikkert and Associate Professor of Community Development Dr. Russell Mask.

"Corbett, Fikkert, Mask, and Wescher. While these professors are not the only reason I am at Covenant, they are a large part of it. When I heard them speak or had conversations with them before I was a student here, I knew that these were people that I wanted to learn from and be like. They love what they teach and their passion is contagious."
