“The Spiritual Danger of Doing Good” – a good warning for those in ministry and nonprofits

“Many accounts of international charity work show the principals going from success to success. A just-published (Aug. 15) book, Peter Greer’s The Spiritual Danger of Doing Good (Bethany House, 2013, with Anna Haggard), is impressively different. Greer honestly shows the dangers of pride, burnout, disillusionment, and marital stress when we concentrate so hard on achieving a philanthropic objective that we run over people on the way.”
