Product Description

Designed as a manual, tentmaking describes the ins and outs of business overseas as a means of missions. Those who are unfamiliar with the world of tentmaking will find valuable information to introduce them to the concept and to help in getting started. But more than just an overview of tentmaking questions and issues, this book will serve as a thorough reference and practical guide for 21-st century tentmakers.

This thoroughly researched work is the result of interviews from over 450 people serving in the 10/40 window. It provides a fresh viewpoint on missions, sharing proven, workable alternatives to conventional missionary life.

-Greg Livingston

Patrick and his wife are two of the most experienced and effective tentmakers today. This long-awaited book is the clearest and most comprehensive treatment of the subject to date. It will no doubt be a tremendously useful resource for tentmaking novices and veterans alike.
-Steve Rundle

Patrick's meticulous research, upon which much of the book is based, also gives added credibility to everything he says. Tentmaking is a 'must-read' for all current and future tentmakers worldwide.
-Larry W. Caldwell

Patrick is no armchair theorist. Having watched him in action for nearly two decades, i am impressed with his abilities and expertise in tentmaking. His book is an excellent tool of practically for anyone interested in serving the Lord through the professional 'secular' route.
