Product Description

In this short and powerful book, a Christian community development expert and a Christian economist discuss the extensive damage done to communities in the developing world by well-meaning western relief efforts.

Offers a new framework for thinking about helping the poor that defines poverty in terms of broken relationships rather than mere material deprivation. This helps us distinguish between three types of economic need – relief, rehabilitation and development – and points toward more effective ways of working with the poor to help them rise out of poverty.
