Great new audiobook from Christianaudio.com

When Helping Hurts

When Helping Hurts

My review:
When Helping Hurts, by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert, is a breath of fresh air. They write about renewing our commitment to helping the poor in the the US and beyond. In their minds, helping hurts because we need to realize that everyone is broken at some level. They explain that we are all either suffering from spiritual intimacy, poverty of being, poverty of community, or poverty of stewardship. And “until we embrace our mutual brokenness, our work with low-income people is likely to do far more harm than good.” Instead of serving in soup kitchen or giving money to charity, Corbett and Fikkert suggest that we genuine relationships with the poor and seek restoration together.
