Truth and Community Transformation

2003
Today, "community development" has largely become a secularized industry, one that views poverty as socially or structurally caused, and whose solutions are likewise mechanical and structural. For Christians, the danger of unintentionally operating within this false framework is very real. Developed by a team of seasoned community development practitioners, Truth and Community Transformation provides a practical resource for Christians to apply a rigorously biblical mindset to grass-roots development work. It concisely details a series of biblically-rooted principles covering such topics as agriculture, health, and child development. Written for workers of Christian compassion who deeply desire to function within a distinctively biblical framework.

Servanthood: The Calling of Every Christian

2009
Humanity has always been seduced by a desire to compete and succeed at the cost of others. A “great person” is the one with the most servants. Yet Jesus shows us a radically different way. In His Kingdom, “the greatest” is the one who serves the most. When Christ's followers understand and embrace a lifestyle of humble service, the impact in their lives, families, communities and nations is nothing short of revolutionary. Servanthood: The Calling of Every Christian has been used to train cross-cultural missionaries for over 20 years. These 13 newly revised Bible studies, designed for individual or small group study, will help you discover the freedom, joy and life that await those who follow in Christ's footsteps and embrace their calling as servants.

Calvin and World Mission

2009
At the end of the ‘Calvin-Year’, in which Christians all over the world celebrate Calvin’s 500 birthday, this book emphasizes Calvin’s role for establishing a Protestant mission theology which later led to a worldwide expansion of Protestant Christianity. The book presents major articles on the topic through 125 years of history and from different viewpoints from 1882 to 2002. Some of the articles discuss Calvin and his writings and thinking on mission alone. Some add the question, what kind of mission has been organized from Geneva during Calvin's time, because Calvin did not only speak about evangelism and mission, but also helped establish it in reality, even though on a quite small scale compared to later centuries. Some articles go further, and follow the students and followers of Calvin and their relation to mission through history. Thus sometimes the wider topic of ‘Calvinism and Mission’ is included. This book has not been edited to defend ‘Calvinism’ and its dogmatic system. This has even from Calvinism’s own firm position to be done on exegetical grounds. Nevertheless some of the authors wrote their articles as a defence of Calvinism or at least as very convinced Calvinists. Others write more from a neutral point of view as historical researchers.

When You Cross Cultures

1990
This book brings with it the author’s wealth of experience both from having lived as a cross-cultural missionary as well as one who is to this day coaching and mentoring cross-cultural missionaries across Asia. The numerous personal stories and that of Jim’s friends and colleagues are a reflection of this. The unique contribution of this book is that it is written by an Asian, from an Asian perspective, with Asian experience, narrating stories and addressing issues of missions in the Asian world. Jim spells out the issues and dilemmas on the mission field and brings a biblical perspective to it. With real life case studies and practical suggestions, Jim brings us into the living room of the mission field. He takes away the mystery of going to the mission field and plants our feet firmly on the ground. Although Jim has written the book for missions and church leaders and prospective missionaries it is also relevant to all of us. Today, in many of the countries we live in, cross-cultural missions is at our doorstep.
