Description

How do Christian organizations, engaged in development work, effectively facilitate the holistic transformation of communities?
In this important contribution to the field, Dr. Stephen Yashim reviews the participatory, problem-solving approaches commonly utilized by Christian relief and development organizations in Nigeria. Dr. Yashim highlights the failure of current methods to facilitate dialogue between the biblical worldview with its divine, transformative potential, and the worldview of local rural communities. In order for rural communities to progressively experience biblical shalom – the total well-being of the whole and its members – they must be equipped to examine and articulate their own perspective on development while also engaging with biblical perspectives.
Dr. Yashim proposes an alternative approach of “participatory appreciative dialogue” to be used alongside more traditional methods in pursuit of community transformation. This is an excellent resource for anyone engaged in community development and transformation, and who longs to experience biblical shalom poured out among individuals and communities.
