Reviews - What do customers think about On the Way with Jesus: A Passion for Mission?
Profoundly interesting and thought provoking Mar 22, 2010
Richard Showalter's book is a great read for those seeking to understand the role of missions in today's context. He has both long experience and a deep understanding of the contemporary challenges of the mission field. He also has particularly interesting perspectives on missions and engagement in Muslim lands. These sections are particularly relevant today, whether you live in America or Afghanistan.
An excellent companion to Showalter's book is Pilgrims on the Silk Road: A Muslim-Christian Encounter in Khiva. This book delves into the story of Mennonite-Muslim engagement. In the 1880's, End Times beliefs prompted hundreds of Mennonites to migrate to Central Asia as they searched for a refuge from the Tribulation. However, their return to core Anabaptist beliefs helped them make a profound impact on their Muslim neighbors. Pilgrims on the Silk Road offers a great example of how lasting Mennonite values lend toward positive Muslim-Christian relationships.
