    I¿ll trust that if you¿re here to read the reviews of this book

    I’ll trust that if you’re here to read the reviews of this book that you don’t share the bias of the June 24, 2012 reviewer. If the reviewer considers cultural genocide to be anything outside of cultural stagnancy, then I suppose he or she is justified in the attack. Otherwise, I have to wonder if the reviewer even read the book or whether the reviewer was merely spewing forth bitterness from other experiences. While it is historically true that the cultural baggage of the traditional western missionary has accompanied the Gospel in many instances, this is actually a refreshing story of how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can be passed on in its purity without pushing the western culture on the indigenous peoples. It is a reflection of a new, culturally relevant, and hence a more effective method of doing Christian missions. In passing the pure Gospel to the indignant people, encouraging them to read the Word of God for themselves, turning over leadership to those who live in that culture, and then backing off to allow the Holy Spirit to work with them in applying the Gospel and Scripture to their circumstances we see rapid multiplication of churches in places where there had previously been no believers. This is also an honest and often humorous telling of the joys as well as costs of following Jesus' command to make disciples of all people groups. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to count the costs of being a disciple committed to the Great Commission.

    Hub Arrogance

    A bare faced admission of cultural genocide by yet another swarm of self righteous Christian missionaries come to inflict their worldview on another batch of brown skinned people. I've seen them in action both in Africa and now Central Asia and the toll on traditional culture is tragic and profound. Wish the Mongolian government had ridden them out on a rail!
