How to Stop Doing Outreach and Start Making Change
When is doing good not good enough? When does "doing outreach" actually do harm?
Smart Compassion calls Christians to strategic, prayerful, and biblically based approaches to compassion. In the vein of When Helping Hurts, Furlong uses his background as a church leader and nonprofit founder to guide readers through the three aspects of smart compassion needed for families and neighborhoods to flourish: healing presence, radical hospitality, and collective empowerment. Discover wise strategies that bring Jesus' love to your neighbors. Shift your paradigm from fixing everybody's problems to spending yourself well. Learn how to hold together justice and evangelism, worldly wisdom and divine revelation, action and prayer.
For anyone who wants to make a difference but doesn't know how, Smart Compassion offers a contagious vision and practical steps for real change.
To use as a study, also see Smart Compassion (6-Session Handbook), available separately.
