Children in Crisis

By: Phyllis Kilbourn, ed.

Too many children today are hindered from realizing the fullness of God’s love. AIDS, abandonment, abuse, forced labor, war, and violence ravage far too many children around the world. We need a biblical response to their plight. Children in Crisis spells out the role of the church in a biblical, God-directed response. This unique book will acquaint you with the problems children around the world face and show you how to respond. There is also a listing of agencies and organizations specializing in helping children.

In this volume, experienced practitioners address the question of how we can respond appropriately to CHEs by linking conceptual and theoretical thinking to practical application at the grassroots level.

Career-Defining Crises in Mission

By: Paul Keidel

Career-Defining Crises in Mission is written to help missionaries evaluate their ministry approaches and to pursue those that place relationships over programs. Each of the 12 chapters takes a well-known missiological principle and, instead of focusing on the theory behind it, uses Bible studies, illustrations, true stories, and practical suggestions to encourage missionaries to make decisions that cultivate relationships with people as they choose mission methods.
