Across the Street and Around the World: Following Jesus to the Nations in Your Neighborhood … and Beyond
Nelson Books, 2018, 272 pages
Jeannie Marie shows that following Jesus’ final instructions doesn’t have to be as daunting or as impossible as the typical believer might imagine. In a back-to-the-basics way, Marie walks the reader through the shifts in perspective necessary to align one’s heart, mind, and everyday living with God’s heart for the nations. Using personal stories, she offers practical tips and spiritual lessons for engaging in cross-cultural relationships, both at home and overseas, with love and purpose. She shows that connecting with people from different cultural backgrounds simply starts with walking across the street as we join in God’s redemptive plan for our neighborhoods, our cities, and around the world.
