Today's Resource Friday highlight is a book we are giving away entitled When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor and Yourself.
Dr Bryan Chapell, President of Covenant Theological Seminary gives this review:
"Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert are zealous to make sure that we honor the gospel not only in word but also in deed by caring for "the least of these" as Christ instructed. But how can a local church make a difference, and how do individual Christians meaningfully reflect Christ's grace, when the disparities of wealth and power in our world are so great? And how do we show material care without drifting into a social gospel devoid of spiritual priorities? When Helping Hurts explores biblical principles in terms of real-life situations to offer real help and grace-filled answers for such questions."
You can also download When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor and Yourself this month for free from christianaudio.com.
