Over my Shoulder: In Search of the Ideal Missionary: Exploring the Impact of Personality on Cross-Cultural Mission
1 in stock
In Over My Shoulder, Naomi Reed acknowledges the debilitating issue of comparison amongst missionaries and then sets out to discover whether there is, in fact, an ideal missionary personality.
Her research leads her to conduct 49 interviews with a range of cross-cultural workers whose responses to questions of adjustment and missionary life are as diverse as they are excruciatingly honest. In linking these responses to personality type, Naomi provides a unique glimpse into the way different personalities respond to the challenges and delights of cross-cultural service.
It's in knowing and understanding ourselves and each other, she concludes, that we're more able to serve God effectively in the places where he leads us. This is a unique and timely book which will both encourage and stimulate the missions community - it's a must-read for anyone interested in, or involved in, cross-cultural mission.
