    When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor…and Yourself 
    Poverty is much more than simply a lack of material resources, and it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve it. This book shows how some alleviation efforts, failing to consider the complexities of poverty, have actually (and unintentionally) done more harm than good. It also encourages us to see the dignity in everyone, to empower the materially poor, and to know that we are all uniquely needy—and that God in the gospel is reconciling all things to himself. Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts provides proven strategies for effective poverty alleviation, catalyzing the idea that sustainable change comes not from the outside in, but from the inside out. *Buy from Amazon.
