Reviews - What do customers think about Discovering Missions?

Missions update for local churches in our flattened world  Jan 12, 2008
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.
