Editorial Reviews

Review

"What glows from this book is how King experiences the "activation" of his faith. But it's a smart and educated activation - he doesn't rush in to do something but instead works with people more experienced and knowledgeable. In other words, he learns."
- Glynn Young, Author of Dancing Priest, A Novel
 
"What I discovered in this book is not so much a "how-to" manual. Not so much a "this is the way you become a missionary" story. This is no step-by-step guide to emerging from the pew. The Unlikely Missionary is a beautiful tale of obedience and courage in being faithful to where God calls in each moment."
- Laura Boggess, Special Projects Editor, TheHighCalling.org

I stumbled upon Dan King (@bibledude) in the forums of the Tentblogger community. Dan's first e-book, The Unlikely Missionary, is a great read and is a great introduction to life on the mission field for someone who has never been on the mission field before.

Jumping over to the book site, I read about his experiences as first-time missionary and the work that God did on his heart. The Unlikely Missionary is a story-driven, first-person narrative outlining his first mission trip outside the United States. He partnered with the Five Talents organization which works to provide micro-financing loans for underdeveloped regions in order for people to obtain a better way of life.

As Dan described his journey across the ocean to Kenya, I began to remember so vividly my own experiences in that country. The bumpy roads, the stench of stale air and other smells you did not even know existed, and the faces of people who traveled hours, even days, to hear messages of hope.

This book is great for anyone who wants to know what a mission trip looks and feels like without ever leaving the comforts of home. Dan addresses:

Heart Attitude - your own and those who you will meet
Culture Shock - you think you are prepared...and then...you realize you are not
Hope - you can't fix everything, but you can provide hope
Engagement - stories of triumph and struggle...even your own
Action - each chapter provides a call to action for your own personal development

I would recommend this book to mission agencies as well as church staff's who are looking to take a teams overseas. The narrative is geared towards Africa; however, it is not so much the place as it is what it does in your own heart. It is a quick read, and the questions at the end of each chapter are ideal for a small group discussion or team preparation. I hope that you will check out this great resource, and stop by Dan's blog for more stories.

Dan King is very transparent and genuine in this book. His life was dramatically changed when he was called to action. After experiencing first hand the poverty that exist in Africa, King could not sit by and live his life ignoring the need. He does not play himself out to be a superhero, but makes it very clear that he is just a regular guy with normal struggles that strives to make the world a better place for those around him.

At the end of each chapter, King provides practical steps the reader can take to begin conversations and ways to become involved in making a difference.

The book is an easy read and very inspiring.

I highly recommend this book.

Great quick read on going on mission trips. Author challenges each of us to get out there and do something. Very encouraging book. We can make a difference, small changes can yield big results. Loved the stories about Africa and the pictures.

An honest look at how a trip to Africa touched Dan's heart and how his heart was able to touch others for Jesus in a lasting way.
This book brought me to an understanding that I can be a part of the solution to poverty on the other side of the world, as well as, in my own town. No waiting for the some day ....Start Now. Motivation and encouragement in every chapter this book has a place for personal growth, as well as, a resource in home groups, or, a group starting their preparations for a missions journey.
I Highly Recommend This Work.

As someone who has experienced mission work first hand and how it changed my life forever, I fully endorse this book and any future writings by the author Dan King.

This was a short book about a man who was writing up posts on his blog about poverty and ended up being asked to be a part of an organization for a short-term missions trip. He was to give a micro-loan presentation to people in Uganda & Kenya who wanted to have help for their small businesses. I felt in a way like I was reading a few blog entries when reading this book as there were some pictures and links to youtube videos and more on it. It was pretty simple and got the point across. It was good, but not an amazing book. If you are a blogger (as I am), it was pretty interesting to learn about, since the man had never been on a missions trip and how his world was changed from his two weeks away from his home life.

Dan`s book is well written and easy to read. As one who is interested in missions, it's inspiring to know that God will open the doors, you just have to walk through them; that opportunities are out there you just have to be looking. I look forward to future books about missions Dan goes on, and how God is continuing to use him to impact the world.

it was a good short read. I liked that this book was a different outlook on how to help end the cycle of poverty while using your gifts abd talents. not only overseas,but in your own community.
