Thankfully, the authors provide plenty of hope by suggesting many ways to improve and even overhaul our charitable efforts. The book messes with my head, in a very good way.
This book receives 4/5 stars in that what I really needed was the theology which is the beginning and the very end. The rest of the book is more tactical suggestions that don’t really fit our needs right now. Not that this is irrelevant, it just isn’t what we needed right at this moment.
I believe When Helping Hurts should be read by all believers who wish to serve others in need and it should be REQUIRED for all in ministry positions at your local church. Ask them if they've read this and then ask them to lead the church though a study. You will be challenged and you will be changed!
