Affluence as a Western Missionary Problem. This revised edition of 'Missions and Money' offers new reflections in the light of a changed situation in Christian missionary circles, now marked by increases in the number of short-term missioners and increases in the numbers of Asians, Africans, and Latin Americans leaving their homelands to serve as missionaries to other peoples.
Insightful and deeply probing book on the problematic relation of mission and money that zeroes in on the difficulties that occur when the evangelizer is relatively affluent and ministers among the poor.
The conversation on the ambiguity of wealth and Christian missionary outreach is deepened with essays by Christopher J. H. Wright on the righteous rich in the Hebrew Bible and by Justo Gonzalez on faith and wealth in the Christian Bible.
