On the ground experience
Ministering in a cross-cultural context comes with a range of complexities and challenges. In Doing Mission in the Arab World, the first from Interserve’s Grassroots Mission Publications, we read the insights of mission practitioners into a range of areas. These are presented in 11 short articles, each addressing a different facet of working in the Arab world.
The great strength of this book is that it is written from the perspective of people who have lived experience of what they present. This gives many of the articles a very practical and applicable grounding. Standout articles include a compelling case for discipling new believers from a Muslim background, a call to reconsider the ‘C1-C6’ contextualisation scale (an influential method of categorising churches by what cultural aspects they include) and an excellent article about human rights on the basis of Christian doctrines.
