Publisher's Summary

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.

Helpful insights

This unabridged audiobook explores many important concepts surrounding poverty alleviation programmes, motives and attitudes. This was recommended to me by someone who works for Tearfund and I found this listen both compelling and challenging, even after having tried to think about this before.
