Item description for Missions And Money: Affluence As a Missionary Problem...revisited (American Society of Missiology Series) by Jonathan J. Bonk...

Overview
Money is required for mission, but wealth can distort the process of making manifest the person of Jesus. First published in 1991, Missions and Money became a much-discussed book in Christian missionary circles. Here, Bonk offers new reflections in the light of a changed situation, one marked by increases in the number of short-term missioners and huge increases in the numbers of Asians, Africans, and Latin Americans who are leaving their homelands to serve as missionaries to other peoples. Included are two new essays by Christopher J. H. Wright on the righteous rich in the Hebrew Bible and by Justo Gonzalez on faith and wealth in the Christian Bible and the early church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Missions And Money: Affluence As a Missionary Problem...revisited (American Society of Missiology Series)?

Funny author name; powerful book  Dec 8, 2007
This challenging book confronts evangelicals' stewardship of resources, and to settle for nothing less than a "righteous rich" behavior; representing a credible Gospel witness. Bonk says that Missions and Money "is not about economic theory, but about the challenge of living Christianly in contexts of dire economic deprivation and destitution" (xxiv, emphasis original).

The Gospel translates as a message presented by Christians through words and deeds; God's loving Kingdom rule has entered earth; this truth must follow with Christian practices that proclaim God's just rule.

The material wealth of many Christians in America is sometimes only exceeded by a material greed. The Gospel has a difficult, but livable answer. God says that camels can go through eyes of needles... but only with His power.

Read this book to penetrate your life with a challenge to live out a "more excellent way" (cf. overture to 1 Corinthians 13).
