    Churches and individual Christians typically have faulty assumptions about the causes of poverty, resulting in the use of strategies that do considerable harm to poor people and themselves. When Helping Hurts provides foundational concepts, clearly articulated general principles and relevant applications. The result is an effective and holistic ministry to the poor, not a truncated gospel.

    Story

    Like most Christians, I want to put my faith into action by preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and by showing real love to widows, orphans and the oppressed. This audiobook contained information that was convicting, instructional and motivational. The conviction came from realizing how much more I could be doing to relieve suffering among the poor. I particularly appreciated the author's insights into the nature of poverty and his suggestions for giving a hand up rather than a hand out as well as how to give without taking the recipient's dignity. I listened to this audiobook in preparation for a short term mission trip and came away with several ideas to run by the host missionaries for how I and the team I'm part of could contribute to their work.

    All in all, a very worthwhile book.
