This book discusses how sustainable, holistic, community development can be, and is being, achieved through the work of the local church. Leading African development practitioners describe different aspects of development through their own experience.

This book brilliantly introduces us to the forgotten ingredient in our collective efforts to serve the poor – the local church. Through the voices of front-line African practitioners we learn how local congregations are playing central roles in holistic, sustainable community transformation – and it’s breath-taking.

Matthew Frost, CEO, Tearfund UK

All around the world, more and more biblical Christians have embraced holistic mission which combines word and deed, evangelism and social action. The task now is to discover how best to do holistic ministry. This collection of stories of (and reflection on) holistic ministry in Africa is a helpful addition to our growing understanding.

Ron Sider, Evangelicals for Social Action
