Product Description

Good intentions are not enough. When Helping Hurts offers a different framework for thinking about poverty and its alleviation. Rather than simply defining it as a lack of material things, the book addresses the roots of the issue: broken relationships with God, self, others, and the rest of creation. Join together as a class to explore how to help the poor without hurting them. Utilize with free, online video lessons set both in Africa and the United States. 6 Units.

Publisher's Description

When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation with over 300,000 copies in print. This stand-alone resource applies the principles of  that book specifically to short-term missions.

Helping Without Hurting in Short-Term Missions: Participant’s Guide aims to train and debrief team members, preparing them to do short-term missions as effectively as possible. To do this, it provides practical examples and guidelines for team members, and it creates interaction and reflection opportunities through questions and journaling.

With eight units, six of which are built around free online video content, this book equips teams to avoid harming materially poor communities and to translate their experience into lasting and mutual engagement with missions and poverty alleviation. In conjunction with the separately available Leader’s Guide, it is an ideal resource for churches, Christian colleges, mission agencies, and missionaries.

    When Helping Hurts in Short-Term Missions - Steve Corbett & BrianFikkert

    Good Reads

    Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert first wrote When Helping Hurts How

    to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor and Yourself. My husband

    and I have had many people suggest that we read this book. We have yet

    to do so and probably would have been beneficial as its referenced

    multiple times throughout their new book Helping Without Hurting In

    Short-Term Missions.

    I still continued to read this book as my husband and I have both been

    on several short-term missions trips and have a desire to continue to

    do so in the future.

    The authors main focus throughout the book is our definition of

    poverty. Poverty is commonly defined as a lack of material things.

    Corbett and Fikkert argue that poverty is much more than that. Rather

    its a lack of intimate relationship with Christ and others.

    A great deal of time is spent on describing the ineffectiveness of the

    current short-term mission model. They argue that this current model

    does a great deal of harm to both the missionaries and those receiving

    the missions work.

    They also provide practical suggestions and information to help equip

    any short-term missions team for realistic experiences and

    expectations on domestic or international trips.

    The book also includes an option for online video-based studies to

    compliment the book and any pre-trip training for teams.

    Without having read their first book, I do believe this could have a

    very effective impact on a teams perspective and expectations for

    short-term mission trips.

    Helping Without Hurting in Short-Term Missions by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert addresses the convicting and often misinterpreted motivation behind the increasingly popular evangelic movement of short-term missions, brief interludes of Christian charity funded and performed by churches. With honesty and encouragement, authors Corbett and Fikkert address the underlying adaptive challenge of spiritual poverty not only within targeted countries and locations, but also without the church striving to make social change and spread the Gospel through STMs. Encouraging readers to reject the materialistic notion that poverty and need is generated through a lack of assets, the authors offer a fresh perspective of short-term missions that focuses on the true needs of those ministered to on a vital spiritual level. Both the Leaders Guide and Participants Guide in this curriculum are valuable tools for churches and small groups seeking refreshment and a theologically sound, charitable approach to an often controversial and problematic evangelic practice. This review was offered in exchange for a free review copy by the publisher.
