When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor and Yourself is a new book by Covenant College professors Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert.  The book implores us to re-think our ideas about both the causes of poverty and the most effective way to help the poor.

The authors are conducting a series of webinars about helping Haiti earthquake victims, using principles from the book.  The next webinar takes place on Feb. 24.
