Every Christian wants to know how to help poverty-stricken people around the world. As believers, our questions run deeper than who to donate to or how to choose a charity. We don’t just want to send money—we want to roll up our sleeves, get our hands dirty, and really make a difference. But in our genuine desire to do frontline ministry, does our helping sometimes do more harm than good?
Dr. Brian Fikkert, a Yale-educated professor of economics and community development, is joined by theologian Dr. Kelly Kapic and poverty relief expert Steve Corbett in these books that have revolutionized the Christian understanding of how to help the poor. The authors combine a deep knowledge of the Bible’s teaching on poverty with real-world expertise on the complex dynamics that produce it. Learn from their insights so the next time your heart is telling you to do good, your hands will know just what is needed to bless “the least of these.”
