Abstract

Many of the most challenging mission fields today are places where the presence of a missionary may be resented as a foreign invasion, and those who embrace the Christian faith may be seen as traitors of their family and community. We need to be wise, acting with love, respect and humility, following Jesus' example of incarnation, seeking to understand the culture. But even missionaries who faithfully follow Jesus' example can be persecuted or cause persecution among the people they love. This book is a timely and necessary contribution to the church in its mission today.
