Outside the Margins: Lessons from Walking with Communities of the World
Outside the Margins: Lessons from walking with communities of the world, by Sharon Bieber provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of CHE. Highlighting lessons Sharon and Bill have learned about what works and doesn’t work and the communities that have taught them, these stories are gleaned from many years of interacting and training in various parts of the world. The candid wisdom of Outside the Margins moves beyond current development data to offer some solid principles that could benefit anyone who longs for change. The hope is to challenge others to step outside the margins of their own cultural or geographical boundaries.
Beyond Poverty:Multiplying Sustainable Community Development
The church has historically played an active role in alleviating global poverty with a goal of encouraging sustainable community development. However, our efforts often focus on limited-scope projects that provide good solutions to a single community. In “Beyond Poverty,” Terry Dalrymple calls us to move beyond sustainable projects in a single village to transformational movements that multiply change from village to village and sweep the countryside. Through multiple case studies based on the actual experiences of more than 900 organizations in 135 different countries, this book tells the story of a large and growing network of ministries around the world using the strategy of Community Health Evangelism to change the life of the poor forever. The principles in this book are not just theory, but proven strategy. The church is uniquely positioned to accelerate poverty alleviation worldwide. This book is a roadmap for Christian ministries that want to see their efforts multiplied, and to ignite Christ-centered transformational movements that multiply disciples while lifting whole communities out of cycles of poverty and disease.
