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.

    " Hard, hard book. It caused me to completely rethink my understanding of poverty and my attempts to alleviate poverty. And it challenged me to take action, not simply think. "

    " Excellent introduction into doing relief and development work. If you are going to be doing any kind of work with the poor, you at least have to read this. It is foolish to do so with out being informed on the basics, and this book covers them extremely well. "

    " terrific coverage of why "charity" or "development" work is often worse than if nothing had happened "
