Description

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. With evangelical Anabaptist convictions and insights from psychology, Wesley 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: collective empowerment, radical hospitality, and healing presence. In the vein of When Helping Hurts, 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.

Review quote

"We are called to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength--but too often, we forget to engage our minds. Furlong's new book is sobering and enlightening, a call to cultivate love and justice as we actively love our neighbors. Ultimately, Smart Compassion teaches us to love as Christ has loved us, bringing holistic transformation to our hearts and our minds."
