Training Missionaries: Principles and Possibilities

In the preface the authors declare, “This book is written for people who train missionaries.” Missionaries must 1) know God, 2) be able to relate well to other people, 3) understand and engage with another culture, and 4) be able to use the Bible in a way that informs all aspects of their lives and ministries. Training Missionaries addresses these four key areas that every missionary training program, whatever its context, must focus on developing. It shows how these can be holistically addressed in a learning community where trainers and trainees engage in cross-cultural ministry together.
