Product Description

All too often socio-economic development is understood in overly simplistic terms, leaving out key components that can determine the failure or success of a young society. Yet, even with these key concepts understood, there is also a systematic failure to understand how each is intricately intertwined with the other.

In Walking with the Poor: Principles and Practices of Transformational Development Proposes an understanding of development in which the physical, social, and spiritual dimensions of life are seamlessly interrelated. Taking into account the various human dynamics that influence and stabilize society, Myers book is an excellent guide to gaining a proper understanding of social development.

Publisher's Description

Proposes an understanding of development in which the physical, social, and spiritual dimensions of life are seamlessly interrelated.

"A masterpiece of integration and application that draws widely on the best Christian and scientific sources on development and draws solid conclusions from what we have learned from experience in ministries around the world." From the Foreword by Paul G. Hiebert

"A book from which Christians of every church tradition can draw deeply and profit greatly. The practical wisdom found here can only be the result of what is expressed by its title: 'walking with the poor.'" --Stephen B. Bevans, Catholic Theological Union

In this revised and updated edition of a modern classic, Bryant Myers shows how Christian mission can contribute to dismantling poverty and social evil. Integrating the best principles and practice of the international development community, the thinking and experience of Christian nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and a theological framework for transformational development, Myers demonstrates what is possible when we cease to treat the spiritual and physical domains of life as separate and unrelated.
