This book is a thinker and definitely parts of it are a must read for any person who is thinking of being involved in any charitable work in Africa. This book will challenge many of your common ideas about helping the poor. Well written. Many sections are written specifically for people who are pastors in an African Church or are missionaries in Africa.
