Undivided Witness presents ten key principles linking community development and the emergence of vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the ‘least reached’. Twelve practitioners explore this uncharted missiological space, drawing on decades of serving and learning among communities in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and South, Central and Southeast Asia.
Undivided Witness is an asset for those involved in community development as an act of obedience to the call of God. It provides key principles to operationalise this ‘space’ into real life and address difficult issues that grassroots frontliners encounter.
Dr. Jayakumar Christian, former National Director, World Vision India
Drawing on the experience and expertise of community development practitioners, Undivided Witness highlights the Kingdom of God, best practice and taking the shalom of God to the least reached. A refreshing polyphonic symphony of voices from around the world runs throughout.
Peter Tarantal, Associate International Director, OM; Chair, World Evangelical Alliance Mission Commission
Undivided Witness brings theology and practice together. The wealth of experience expressed throughout makes you hunger for more and to become more engaged oneself... a key resource for all of us to draw from.
Sheryl Haw, theologian and aid practitioner; former International Director for Micah Global/Micah Network
This is a valuable keepsake in the journey towards transformation, not just of communities, but of practitioners themselves.
