    A thought-provoking study of education in Bible times and its pivotal role in the spiritual formation of God’s people.An Introduction to Education in Bible Times takes the reader on a fascinating journey through biblical history.

  • My Mothers Sons

    $19.99

    My Mother’s Sons provides a thoughtful model for how Western Christian workers can respectfully negotiate sexual boundaries and norms in Muslim contexts. Westerners are inclined to impose their own culturally shaped notions of gender equality and justice on non-egalitarian communities, alienating the very people they are seeking to serve. The author draws on his own research among Pakistani Pashtuns, intercultural theory, and exegesis of Christian and Islamic sacred texts to show that it is possible to work for transformational change without offending those who live within a patriarchal system.
