When Helping Hurts & Finish the Mission


I’m currently reading When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett & Brian Fikkert and Finish the Mission by John Piper. They’re both great books! They cover similar topics (why/how to help others and share the gospel with them) so it’s been good to read them together and see how they compliment each other. I expected to feel guilty and convicted about missions work after reading Piper’s book, but instead it has been very encouraging. Corbett & Fikkert’s book looks at poverty and how there are right and wrong ways to help the poor. I highly recommend this book! So much great stuff in it, and I’m not even halfway through it. Both books explore Christ’s life and God’s sovereignty and encourage the reader to respond to God’s love and Christ’s example. Christ not only spoke the gospel to the people while he was on earth, he helped them by giving them physical healing. Learning more about the significance of Jesus’ ministry has been amazing. What a beautiful example for us to follow!
