Missions is a multi-faceted and theologically deep issue that many (even those inside Christian churches) do not understand at a rudimentary level. In Discovering Missions, Charles Gailey and Howard Culbertson provide a handbook covering missions from many angles, concentrating on modern missions and encouraging the readers' participation in it. From volunteerism to prayer, organizational models to philosophies of missions, the authors cover much ground in presenting and outlining a biblical framework to global missions work.

Upon initial inspection of our personal copy, my wife and I immediately bought a 2nd copy for our Pastor and her church library. Highly readable, interesting, informational and, perhaps most important, timely. Gailey & Culbertson's Discovering Missions is vital to understanding role of cross-cultural communications vis--vis the future of world-wide missions in a world that is increasingly flat (reference is to Thomas Friedman's globilization treatise, "The World is Flat".
