Product Description

Veteran urban activist Robert Lupton reveals the shockingly toxic effects that modern charity has upon the very people meant to benefit from it. Toxic Charity provides proven new models for charitable groups who want to help--not sabotage--those whom they desire to serve. Lupton, the founder of FCS Urban Ministries (Focused Community Strategies) in Atlanta, the voice of the "Urban Perspectives "newsletter, and the author of "Compassion, Justice and the Christian Life," has been at the forefront of urban ministry activism for forty years. Now, in the vein of Jeffrey Sachs's "The End of Poverty," Richard Stearns's "The Hole in Our Gospel," and Gregory Boyle's "Tattoos on the Heart," his groundbreaking" Toxic Charity "shows us how to start serving needy and impoverished members of our communities in a way that will lead to lasting, real-world change.
