Description

Development 101 will be of little comfort to the "show me the money" types who resent the intrusion of sound theology and doctrine into their practice. Nor will it comfort those whose naive notions are that "all we need to do is pray and trust God."

The reader will see quickly that for John Frank and Scott Rodin, seasoned professionals I am glad to call colleagues, development isn’t merely something done to support ministry. Rightly understood, it is ministry.

Yet more than 'mere' ministry, development done compassionately, wisely, and skilfully is profoundly transformational. It not only transforms the lives of those served by Christian organisations, but it can also transform the lives of donors. And by transforming the lives of those served as well as donors, it helps to transform our world at a time when such transformation is desperately needed.

For those new to development - and to veterans who understand that much of excellence in this critically important field consists of a relentless mastery of the fundamentals - I encourage you to read this book cover to cover. And for those who don't, I harbour the suspicion that the day will come when you’ll wish you had.
