  • Actually enjoyed this book and it made me do some deep thinking. In my opinion, you summarize the reading spot on. The author's perspectives were revelatory. What I think would be very interesting to investigate further are thoughts on your next to last paragraph.

    This is the point where a person of who is more in line with liberal theology is challenged. So is the person of a more "government should not help" bent of mind. Likewise, the people who can feel good about giving resources and not investing in the people.

    In essence, it challenges people of all political and spiritual stripes to look at "charity", whether secular, non secular, and government.

    Excellent blog!!! Congrats

  • I just want to inject that we need to invest in people early on - that we need to ensure that we provide our children (and our families) with quality health care, an education that meets their needs and empowers them, safe housing and food security.

  • Excellent book! You have done a great job of hitting Lupton's major points. Every community has problems but are we helping or creating dependency? Enjoying your blogs about the Leaders Academny!
