Book Reviews

"One of the most helpful books I have read on mission. I wish I had read something like this before heading off to the mission field myself and would see it almost as required reading for anyone intending to cross cultures to share the gospel". A review of this book by Andy McCullogh. Reviewed by Phil Jolley.
