  • “Since it was first published, Guthrie's insightful book has become necessary reading for anyone who wants to understand the issues that mission agencies and missionaries must face if we are to carry out our work in the new millennium. I greatly appreciate the balance and perspective he offers and recommend the updated edition even more highly than the original.”

    Scott Moreau, Chair, Missions and Intercultural Studies, Wheaton College, Editor, Evangelical Missions Quarterly

  • "Stan Guthrie does us a great service of sketching the panorama of change."

    David Neff, Editor, Christianity Today

  • “Guthrie's delightful, readable little book does what no other book does. It is simple, sane, and sensible as it briefly but very astutely explores all of the major dimensions and issues of missions today–touchy or not!”

  • Ralph Winter, Founder of U.S. Center for World Mission
