Becoming Whole: Why the Opposite of Poverty Isn't the American Dream

Becoming Whole: Why the Opposite of Poverty Isn't the American Dream

Author: Brian Fikkert, Dr. Brian Fikkert, Kelly M. Kapic Narrator: Joe Geoffrey Release Date: 01/03/2019

We are the richest people ever to walk the face of the earth, but according to research, we aren't becoming happier. Families and communities are increasingly fragmented, loneliness is skyrocketing, and physical and mental health are on the decline. Our unprecedented wealth doesn't seem to be doing us much good. Yet, when we try to help poor people at home or abroad, our implicit assumption is that the goal is to help them to become like us. 'If they would just do things our way, they'd be fine!' But even when they seem to pursue our path, they too find that the American Dream doesn't work for them. What if we have the wrong idea altogether? What if the goal isn't to turn other countries into the United States or to turn America's impoverished communities into its affluent suburbs? In Becoming Whole (building on the bestselling When Helping Hurts), Brian Fikkert and Kelly M. Kapic look at the true sources of brokenness and poverty and uncover the surprising pathways to human flourishing, for poor and non-poor alike. Exposing the misconceptions of both Western Civilization and the Western church about the nature of God, human beings, and the world, they redefine success and offer new ways of achieving that success.

Church in Hard Places: How the Local Church Brings Life to the Poor and Needy

Author: Brian Fikkert, Mez McConnell, Mez Mcconnell, Mike McKinley, Mike Mckinley Narrator: Adam Verner Release Date: 01/01/2016

Foreward by Brian Fikkert. Jesus came to seek and to save the lost, paying particular attention to the downtrodden and the poor. As followers of Jesus, Christians are called to imitate his example and reach out to those who have the least. This book offers biblical guidelines and practical strategies for reaching those on the margins of our society with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The authors-both pastors with years of experience ministering among the poor-set forth helpful "dos" and "don'ts" related to serving in the midst of less-affluent communities. Emphasizing the priority of the gospel as well as the importance of addressing issues of social justice, this volume will help pastors and other church leaders mobilize their people to plant churches and make an impact in "hard places"-in their own communities and around the world.

When Helping Hurts

When Helping Hurts

Author: Brian Fikkert, Steve Corbett Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: 01/02/2010

Churches and individual Christians typically have faulty assumptions about the causes of poverty, resulting in the use of strategies that do considerable harm to poor people and themselves. When Helping Hurts provides foundational concepts, clearly articulated general principles and relevant applications. The result is an effective and holistic ministry to the poor, not a truncated gospel.
