Western Civilization is wealthier, but it isn't happier. We are the
richest people ever to walk the face of the earth, but according to
research, we aren't becoming happier. Families and communities are
increasingly fragmented, loneliness is skyrocketing, and physical
and mental health are on the decline. Our unprecedented wealth
doesn't seem to be doing us much good. Yet, when we try to help
poor people at home or abroad, our implicit assumption is that the
goal is to help them to become like us. "If they would just do
things our way, they'd be fine!" But even when they seem to pursue
our path, they too find that the American Dream doesn't work for
them. What if we have the wrong idea altogether? What if the molds
we are using to help poor people don't actually fit any of us? What
if the goal isn't to turn other countries into the United States or
to turn America's impoverished communities into its affluent
suburbs? In Becoming Whole (building on the best-selling When
Helping Hurts), Brian Fikkert and Kelly M. Kapic look at the true
sources of brokenness and poverty and uncover the surprising
pathways to human flourishing, for poor and non-poor alike.
Exposing the misconceptions of both Western Civilization and the
Western church about the nature of God, human beings, and the
world, they redefine success and offer new ways of achieving that
success. Through biblical insights, scientific research, and
practical experience, they show you how the good news of the
kingdom of God reshapes our lives and our poverty alleviation
ministries, moving everybody involved towards wholeness.
