Churchesand individual Christians typically have faulty assumptions about the causes of poverty, resulting in the use of strategies that do considerable harmto poor people and themselves. When Helping Hurtsprovides foundational concepts, clearly articulated general principles and relevant applications.Theresult is an effective and holistic ministry to the poor, not a truncated gospel.

A situationis assessed for whether relief, rehabilitation, or development is the best response to a situation.Efforts are characterized by an "asset based" approach rather than a "needs based" approach. Shortterm mission efforts are addressed and economic development strategies appropriate for North American and international contexts are presented,including microenterprise development.

Audience: Those engaged in ministry with the poor, including pastors, missionaries, deacon boards and lay leaders, home and foreignmissions committees, mercy ministry teams, and donors. It is appropriate for an individual or for agroup such as a Sunday school class, small group,or ministry team.
