Recommended Reading for Missionaries and Pastors Mar 10, 2002
I'm delighted this work has been revised! I first read this book in the 1980's while a missionary in El Salvador and consider it one of the more personally influential books on the subject I have read. While acknowledging every culture presents unique challenges, the authors contend a standard planning model can help missionaries develop unique strategies for any culture. I have personally followed their ten-step planning model and incorporated it into missionary training curriculum with good success. The empahsis on teamwork in mission is accompanied with a wealth of practical suggestions. I recommend this work to any present or prospective missionaries. The principles given in this book are just as applicable to local church pastors who need to understand basic concepts of strategic planning.
This is not light or easy reading. The authors' research is sound and their presentation thought-provoking. Read this book carefully and I predict you will have a hard time forgetting what you have read.
