When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor…and Yourself
– by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert
This book has become an important book in my perspective on mission and ministry. The authors help Americans to see how their good intension to “do” something or “fix” some situation often create dependencies and power dynamics that are not helping but hurting. They make reframe our understanding of brokenness as something we all have rather than our trying to fix those who are broken.
