Product Description

A firsthand account of how one Christian anti-poverty ministry in Atlanta came to recognize that its efforts to help the poor were doing more harm than good, and undertook extensive reforms. Christmas toy giveaways became a low-priced toy shop; the food pantry and clothing ministry became a low-cost restaurant and clothing store employing poor people. Lupton’s emphasizes how systems of economic exchange recognize mutual dignity in a way that indiscriminate one-way giving does not.
