Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We expected to learn much from Gailey and Culbertson's Discovering Missions. My wife and I were not disappointed. We immediately ordered a 2nd copy for our pastor and her church library.
Future challenges and opportunities for building Christian missions worldwide provided by globalization in our increasingly flattened world, with actions vital to successful cross-cultural communications -- related language and linguistics, theological, psychological, sociological, ethno-musicological, personal commitment and other choices and changes -- are proffered in a clear, candid, caring and fittingly passionate textbook style.
We noted with interest the relevance of cross-cultural communications and other lessons learned in the mission field to the influx of foreign born persons into the U.S., with concomitant outreach opportunities for local churches to maintain and improve membership numbers here, rather than abandoning the present, changing, neighborhoods by closing or moving. We will be ordering more gift copies.

Format: Paperback
This is a well writtin easy to read book on God's mission. It opened my mind to not only the importance of mission but the adjustments of missionaries who want to be God's hand in their base of operation.

This is an excellent book on the theology, history, trends and outlook for the global mission of the church . . . to preach gospel to every tribe and people on earth. Contains helpful charts to show spread of Christianity around the world as well as what remains to be done. This book will go in my library.
