When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor
When Helping Hurts creates a new paradigm for partnership by asking Christians to declare and demonstrate among people who are poor that Jesus Christ is making all things new.
While this book exposes past and current development efforts that churches have engaged in which unintentionally undermine the people they're trying to help, it's central point is to provide proven strategies that challenge Christians to help the poor empower themselves.
Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts catalyzes the idea that sustainable change for people living in poverty comes not from the outside-in, but from the inside-out.
