When Charity Destroys Dignity discusses the overcoming or avoidance of unhealthy dependencies within the Christian movement. Glen Schwartz provides a description of the dependency syndrome, its historical development and how to overcome it. Though unhealthy dependency is widespread, the basic premise is that it does not need to be considered an incurable illness. Readers will be introduced to churches that were once victims of unhealthy dependency but learned how to overcome it. Includes many practical illustrations and suggestions for those in Christian service who face the challenge of avoiding or overcoming unhealthy dependency. Other issues dealt with include medical mission institutions, short-term missions and, most significantly, long-term missionary service. The author welcomes interaction with those who want to seriously deal with the mentality of dependency in the Christian movement.

This is an excellent treatment of the work of churches, para-churches, Mission Societies and Missionaries. Everyone naming the Name of Christ and seeking to effectively serve Him should be well versed in these issues. Tops in my estimation.
