People on the Move - by David Phillips
This is a thick book that you may want to check out a few times, as it tells about the nomads of the world. If they are on the move, which of them have a Christian witness, whether they have Scriptures in their language. Maybe you might be led to pick a couple to pray for, but at least expose yourself to what is out there in our world. Maps and pictures add to this intriguing book.
Joyful Witness in the Muslim World - by Evelyne Reisacher
The author points out that not all Muslims know much about their faith. Some are secular Muslims, others might be the Muslim Cool. She goes into various areas of life where you could meet and interact with Muslims in a more natural way....the arts, being green, the web, helping the needy, etc. You don’t need to travel to the Middle East. This is not a how to book, but one to encourage you to learn about Muslims and their faith. You don’t have to be an expert.
Scatter- by Andrew Scott
Missions is changing. You don’t need to leave your job, go to seminary, raise support. You don’t even need to start a business in another country. To quote Mr. Scott “ that we will scatter into every area of society- business, the arts, education and more and be the Daniels of our day: being good at what we do, gaining favor in our workplace and having the credibility and freedom to share our faith boldly.” Mr. Scott isn’t speaking about being a witness where you are, which we all should be doing, but in another country doing a job you love. Mission agencies are linking together to encourage believers to think out of the box and apply for that job in Saudi, Europe, etc.
