Publisher's Description

This eminently practical book challenges the church to shift tactics in the battle against spiritual and physical poverty and equips ordinary Christians to translate their compassion into thoughtful action. Authors Peter Greer and Phil Smith examine the pitfalls of traditional approaches to reducing poverty. Then, through real-life stories and insight born of personal experience in serving the poor, they outline a new model of economic development based on proven solutions for effectively reducing poverty. They demonstrate how microfinance and employment-based solutions free people from the cycle of dependency, helping them regain their dignity and provide for their families. Blending passion with practicality, they show readers who share God’s heart for the poor how to reorient their efforts from giving handouts to offering a hand up, paving the way for local initiative and ownership. By highlighting poverty-fighting methods for small groups and churches along with workable steps for individuals to pursue, The Poor Will Be Glad sounds a compelling call to carry God’s justice, mercy, and compassion to the hurting people of this world.
