The Forest in the Seed – A Biblical Perspective on Resources and Development

In The Forest in the Seed, Scott Allen and Darrow Miller set out to answer these questions: What resources do we need for truly Christian community development, and where do these resources come from? The transformation of impoverished communities requires resources, yet our worldview determines our vision for what resources we have and which are most important. The Bible reveals God as the source of all resource. He is “Jehova Jireh,” the God who provides for His creation. But do we have eyes to see the vast array of resources He has already provided us? Do our development activities help others discover their God-given resources or hinder them? The Forest in the Seed touches on the topics of economics, poverty, worldview, and community development.
