I had fallen behind in my reading in the last few months due to some craziness. With things settling down (a bit) I have a few books that I am reading right now:

  • Cross-Cultural Servanthood: Serving the World in Christlike Humility (Missiology by Duane Elmer)
  • Jerome: His Life, Writings, and Controversies (Church History by J.N.D. Kelly)
  • World Mission: Theology, Strategy, and Current Issues (Missions Theology by Scott N. Callaham ed.)
  • The Lost Books of the Bible and the Forgotten Books of Eden (Church History by various Patristic writers)
  • Ethics (Practical Theology by Wolfhart Pannenberg)
  • Walking a Sacred Path: Rediscovering the Labyrinth (Pastoral Care by Lauren Artress)
  • Pursuing the Call: A Practical Guide for New and Prospective Missionaries (Missiology by Danny Lamastra)

My Shot at Missions Theology

I decided to put it on Slideshare rather than publish. Why? Dunno. Trying something different.

You can access it by CLICKING HERE.

This website is a place I set up to share some thoughts on

Samaria Front Cover
Book looking at the history of mission work in Samaria with implications to us in reaching our “uncomfortable neighbors”

Christian Missions, as well as some other topics like Theology, Church, Evangelism, Pastoral Theology, and Pastoral Counseling, Yes that is not all that narrow, but I like to think lots of things and this website helps me think.

My wife and I have served in the Philippines for 16 years. I teach missions in a seminary and my wife and I run a pastoral care center.
