A number of books have appeared over the past few years in which a Christian response to poverty is discussed. In 1977 Ronald Sider's groundbreaking book, Rich Christians in an age of Hunger was published with David Chilton's response which appeared four years later, Productive Christians in an age of Guilt Manipulators. Other titles which also grapple with the same topic include When Charity destroys Dignity (Glenn Schwartz), To Give or not to Give (John Rowell) and When Helping Hurts (Steve Corbett & Brian Fikkert) to name but a few. In his 2011 revised and expanded edition of Walking with the Poor (the first edition appeared in 1999), Bryant Myers focuses on, what he describes as transformational development.
