Unleashing and equipping people to effectively help the poor requires repentance and the realization of our own brokenness. When Helping Hurts articulates a biblically based framework concerning the root causes of poverty and its alleviation.

A path forward is found, not through providing resources to the poor, but instead by walking with them in humble relationships.

Whether you're involved in short-term missions or the long-term empowerment of the poor, this book helps teach you three key areas.

  • Foundational Concepts (Who are the poor?)
  • Principles (Should we do relief, rehabilitation, or development?)
  • Strategies (How can we help people effectively home and abroad?)

An additional two chapters and conclusion will help you apply thte teaching to your situation and take the next steps more quickly. It's your best way to a true understanding of poverty and a plan to make a difference.
