Dr. Hale’s practical wisdom is here freely offered to the missionary-to-be and others interested in missions–wisdom hard-earned in Nepal on everything from calling to raising a missionary family to cross-cultural communication. Now revised to include perspectives on the realities of the changing missionary force and the challenges of bonding with a new culture in an increasingly globalized and technologically connected world, this edition of On Being a Missionary addresses current issues while maintaining the wit and warmth of the man who first challenged us with his perspectives on being a missionary.
