My Books

I added a new Page to this Website entitled “My Books.” Right now it has one book I recently wrote, “Theo-Storying: Reflections on God, Narrative, and Culture.” It also has my seminary dissertation (on medical missions). There is

also a rough-draftish book I wrote a couple of years ago on Wholistic Ministry. Even that book has some good stuff.  I will have to get around to cleaning it up sometime. Feel free to rummage around.

Just look for “My Books” tab at the top of the page.

Wholistic Ministry and Nehemiah

A paper that looks at some basic community development principles through the lens of the book of Nehemiah. Unlike a lot of other attempts to utilize the book of Nehemiah, this paper doesn’t simply focus on the first 2 – 4 chapters.

Presentation for Wholistic Ministry

I see that the transfer of my diagram to .odt to .pdf to slideshare got a bit “smudgey.” I will try to fix this in the future. However, for now, I think the paper still have value. It is based on a summarization of the literary review portion of my dissertation.

Some Updates

I added a couple of documents.

A.  I added a new story to the Parables page. That is “Valleyview and River City”. It is based on a story used by CHE (Community Health Evangelism/Education).

B.  I put a “book in the rough” on the Articles page. It is called “Thoughts on Wholistic Ministry in Biblical Context.” It is a series of chapters or articles on wholistic ministry within the context of different passages in the Bible. It should not be viewed as being done or fully edited. I have found that I do better work when it is “in view”. The most popular chapter is “Wholistic Ministry and Nehemiah” which is Chapter 3. But I think some of the others hold merit as well.
