From Publishers Weekly

Middle-class Christians who wonder how to appropriately respond to poverty may enjoy the practical, specific suggestions in 101 Ways to Help People in Need, a guide by Steve and Janie Sjogren. For an evangelical book, it has a refreshing emphasis on social justice and is chock-full of concrete ideas. The Sjogrens begin with tips for immediate relief, such as providing backpacks to the homeless and used computers to low-income families. The next steps are a bit more demanding: helping needy persons to reconcile with God and each other, creating economic opportunities for them and, finally, "relocating" to serve them better (e.g., by using vacation time to assist with house-building). Down-to-earth and compassionate, this is a valuable guide to getting started.

From the Back Cover

If you're like many Christians, you are so busy with day-to-day living that you may be unaware of the needs around you. In fact, you might be puzzled about how to help those who lack. Yet it's not nearly as hard as you might think. Just take a glance at your own community. Mother Teresa once said, "It isn't necessary to move to Calcutta to do something significant." There are people in need all around you, if you only stop to look. Is there a single parent where you work? A disabled child in your neighborhood? Perhaps a family in your church who cannot afford medical insurance? These needs cry out to be met, and God's Word says that to meet them is "pure and faultless" religion. In 101 Ways to Help People in Need, Steve and Janie Sjogren present practical and creative ways for you and your church to reach out to people with physical, emotional, and relational needs––in your neighborhood, your community, your country, and your world.

No single book, philosophy of ministry or methodology will work in every situation, but this author has inspired our church and transformed the way we do ministry. I recommend it if you are tired of sitting in the pews with the lights on and doors open just waiting for your community to walk in.

Ideas were innovative, fun and easy to do. All are practical and some require very little money to implement.

Not very creative...and frankly, disappointing. Nearly every idea stated involves churches pouring out their coffers to market Jesus and his love. Not many of his ideas are a leap beyond mainstream evangelical thought. I didn't think they challenged Christians to make themselves vulnerable in their expression of his love. Buy this book used if you remain interested in reading it.
