Reviews - What do customers think about Reading the Clouds: Mission Spirituality for New Times?

Navigating life's journey  May 31, 2000
Anthony Gittins draws from a wealth of cultural experiences, not all his own, to produce a refreshing, challenging view of human community. We in the Western world need to grasp the values Gittins expresses, to engage in humble, personal ways the many-splendored cultural expressions of dignity, value, growth, and community manifested in the peoples of the world around us. Many have called mankind through the ages to forego petty differences of style and expression, and focus on the common life values; Gittins casts this call in relevant issues of our day. In doing so, he points the way to what appears to be new territory, yet which evokes the memory of Home.
 
splendid in every way  Oct 5, 1999
This is a book of far-reaching horizons, both in terms of spirituality and geography. From West Africa to the Pacific Islands, the author draws on the lush imagery of people and places to illustrate challenges that can be applied to anyone, at home or abroad. A refreshing and contemporary look at mission and ministry today. But beware! This book could be risky and unsettling. Once you crack the cover there will be no turning back. It will require you to remember the values, hopes and promises of a younger, perhaps truer, self.[From the back cover]
