When Helping Hurts

There's a new book out called "When Helping Hurts" . Kevin DeYoung, a favorite of mine, is blogging through the book, and I think it's worth checking out.

It debunks alot of our assumptions about helping the poor. . what really helps. . . what we should be doing, etc. . . .

I'm not sure I'm 100% on board, but I thought I would point you to the blog and let you guys check it out.

I'm probably 90% on board and I think the church has some re-thinking to do, and, of course I always think the government has some re-thinking to do.

Check it out part 1 part 2

yeah, I love "Just Do Something" by Kevin DeYoung.

He didn't write this book, (when helping hurts) he's just commenting on it. Here's part 3. . . pretty good stuff.
