About The Spiritual Danger of Doing Good

Doing good is in style. We sign petitions.We attend conferences.We volunteer. From the shoes we wear to the causes we support, there is a renewed emphasis on serving, giving, and going.

But does doing good have a dark side? Through personal stories, Peter Greer, president and CEO of HOPE International, explores how those doing extraordinary good are susceptible to burnout. Infidelity. Lost faith. Financial compromise. Unfortunately, this isn’t new: Only one in three biblical leaders finished well, too.

The Spiritual Danger of Doing Good is a call to remember why we serve and to increase our awareness of our blind spots, which can wreck individuals, families, churches, and ministries. Exploring common challenges facing those in service, this book seeks to equip Christ followers to live well—and to rediscover the heart of true service.
