Publisher's Description

After years of practical work in overseas mission, studies of how the mission of Jesus has been carried on through the centuries, and teaching in the United States, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Africa, and China, Roger Schroeder set out to distill the wisdom he has gained and mix it with the wisdom of church teaching. The result is a book to help individuals, parishes, dioceses, and national churches grapple practically and put themselves heart and soul into the mission of being Christ in our suffering world.
