Overview

"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

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 practices of the international development community, the thinking and experience of Christian nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) around the world, 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.

Walking with the Poor is a book for all those engaged in mission around the world, whether on the ground, or in the classroom, ministry office, or local church.
