"When Helping Hurts"

Last week we were given a copy of the book When Helping Hurts.  I began reading it the other day and I can hardly put it down. It addresses the subject of poverty and what we are doing about it.  It drives the reader to evaluate their personal understanding and opinion of poverty.  Admittedly my thoughts of what describes poverty have dramatically changed over the past five years as I spend more and more time with the materially poor of this world.  I will not say much more but,  I would highly recommend that every Christian read this book, especially those involved in ministry, outreach or missions whether local or global. If you do read this book, I would love to know what you think of it.
