Reviews - What do our customers think?
insights from Africa for the world  Jun 2, 2008
I have been recommending this book to everyone since I read it before a trip to Kenya a year and a half ago. Donovan goes back to the roots of a Christian faith that was originally spread by going from group to group, and letting them hear the gospel and decide together. Many young adults and youth are now involved in "tribes" and "clusters" and this book has a lot to say to those who are in relationship with them
It also challenges the assumptions of our Western mentality of bringing people to our church, of living apart. Donovan realized that living in a mission compound was not the way to share the good news of Jesus. Instead, the missionaries needed to go out and visit and live with those that they cared about, in his case, the Masai tribe.
I talked to several African friends about their opinions of mission stations. One man, from Liberia, said that they had never understood why the missionaries didn't move into their village, but chose to live apart. Then he started to smile and said, "But when the danger came, they moved into the village with us rather quickly!" When is the church in the West going to move out of their Christian compounds?
It is good to follow this book with Michael Hirsch's book on Forgotten Ways. I would recommend it for church boards who are thinking of the future, and for ministers considering campus ministry or new church starts.
Contemporary Spirituality and Organized Religion  May 6, 2008
Many times a good churchgoer approaches me in my ministry with doubts about organized religion. I always recommend this book, as it offers a practical and spiritual understanding of Christian faith and faith communities. It is a lively and inspiring account of new Christian communities in Africa. Although this book is written by a Catholic priest, it speaks to the heart of any Christian.
Class book  Mar 30, 2007
This book was required reading for my Master's in theology. The book opened my eyes in the aspect of the realization that to bring Christ to different cultures one must understand that culture. It does not matter if the culture is in Old Africa or modern day Chicago. I would rate the book high on my list of books to read.
A faith Rediscovered  Mar 29, 2007
This book is quite insightful concerning missionary work in East Africa. It also digs deeply to bring to the suface the core message of the Gospel. This book will challenge you to reconsider your beliefs and approach to evangelism. Highly readable and deeply insightsfull, this is a great work.
Exciting!  Jan 15, 2007
A documentary of one man's experience as a missionary to the Masai of East Africa, but much more. Challenges long-held views on both the purpose and the method of missions while maintaining an unwavering committment to the gospel.

Quotation: "Dear Bishop, ...Suddenly I feel the urgent need to cast aside all theories and discussions, all efforts at strategy--and simply go to these people and do the work among them for which I came to Africa. ...just go and talk to them about God and the Christian message. Outside of this, I have no theory, no plan, no strategy, no gimmick, no idea of what will come. I feel rather naked. I will begin as soon as possible...."
