With more than 225,000 copies sold, When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation and ministry to those in need. Emphasizing the poverty of both heart and society, this book exposes the need that every person has and how it can be filled. The reader is brought to understand that poverty is much more than simply a lack of financial or material resources and that it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve the problem of poverty.

While this book exposes past and current development efforts that churches have engaged in which unintentionally undermine the people they're trying to help, its central point is to provide proven strategies that challenge Christians to help the poor empower themselves. Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts catalyzes the idea that sustainable change for people living in poverty comes not from the outside-in, but from the inside-out.

  • A must read

    We recently joined an inner city church and of course, were anxious to give back and help those less fortunate. 'Am so glad to have read this book first. I learned that we are all broken in some manner. And, that I am just as broken as those I unconscientiously assume are less than me. This book clearly explains the situation and tells you what you should do to help and when to help and even more important, when not to help. It really is a must read!
