    Our church has used the scripture-based philosophies for a few years and we’re experiencing a paradigm and vision shift that is becoming evident in our cross-cultural ministry partners..all because we changed how we view ourselves. We are looking forward to Helping Without Hurting going forward.

    This is an excellent resource to use with small groups and leadership teams. We recently took our mobilization leadership and summer mission teams through the study. They have included links to videos online that you can stream for your sessions, and they are well worth watching. The questions are smart and insightful, and the study provides an impressively full and holistic view of poverty alleviation in such a short timeframe. Highly recommended, as well as the full text.

    Loved the book, appreciate this group condensed version. This material changed the way we do ministry! Will be inviting others to study it with us.

    I’ve often been skeptical about giving someone on a street corner holding an I AM HUNGRY sign cash, so I switched to McDonald’s gift cards that I carry in my car. However, this book and group study have shown me how I’m not helping — I’m actually hurting someone truly in need or being conned by someone who’s just lazy. There are other ways to truly help a person who needs a big dose of dignity and support, and this study will show how it’s done most effectively. Caution: It’s gonna change you so that you’ll want to get involved!
