This is a must-read for every church interested in charity or relief work whether at home or abroad. In the very least, it should be in every church's reference library for easy consultation before such projects, especially short term mission trips, are planned. However, this is more of a manual than a book you read cover to cover. Without a specific project in mind, it can become a bit tough to wade through. In addition, while not a liability per se, the author's Presbyterianism is a bit strong at times creating certain emphases throughout the book that not everyone will agree with. On the whole, this is a practical book that provides invaluable information for the church today.
