  • Description

    Navigating the Major Decisions of Cross-Cultural Service. Missionaries today face a constant barrage of new ideas and methods to help them deal with cross-cultural decisions. Some fresh recruits arrive in their adopted country full of plans, and with all the right methods, but without understanding how to choose from them. Career-Defining Crises in Mission is written for the missionary in ministry, to help them evaluate ministry approaches and accept those that place relationships above programs. Each of the 12 chapters takes a well-known missiological principle and explains it in a missionary-friendly style. Instead of focusing on theory, the book uses Bible study, illustrations, true stories, and practical suggestions to encourage missionaries to make decisions to interact with people before choosing a method of mission. "Paul Keidel's insights have been tested in the crucible of more than two decades of cross-cultural ministry. He challenges us to be wise and discerning when it comes to importing methods and money from our sending country. More important are authentic relationships opening the door for the hard work of developing healthy, reproducing followers of Jesus. This is a `must read' for every cross-cultural worker." -- Dr. Robert L. Fetherlin (Christian and Missionary Alliance)
