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.

This book helps anybody seeking for humility when it comes to how they view materially poor people. It also explains why the trillion+ dollar war on poverty hasn't moved the meter because it has focused on material relief rather than core development. Not the most exciting or interesting read, but the insight for me has forever changed the way I view poverty and will better inform what I can do as a Christian to make a difference.

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as "soda is liquid Satan" and "you are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin", it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations.

Is all it is. I don't believe half of what is in it. Like anything extreme, you can adopt a few good habits by rolling back meat and dairy consumption and hiking up organic consumption, but you don't have to follow their recommendations to the letter
