Christmas Stories from Around the World: Honoring Jesus in Many Lands


Retired missionary Larry Driskill collected stories from other missionary colleagues about how Christmas was celebrated in various cultures and produced here a sprightly collection of stories gathered from the four corners of Christendom describing how Christ's birth is observed, written by those who have lived around the world. In a most authentic manner it "captures the simplicity and beauty of Jesus' birth through the eyes of Christians around the world," says Congregational pastor Gordon Kirk. It discusses the origins of various Christmas traditions and Christmas music making it a wonderful tool for using at the holidays in children's sermons at church, in Sunday school classes or for children's reading projects.

Cross-Cultural Marriages and the Church: Living the Global Neighborhood


As the number of cross-cultural and interracial marriages in our society grows, our faith communities are welcoming into their midst an increasing number of those who are marrying across the traditional barriers of race, language and ethnicity. Such couples inevitably face unique hurdles as they try to forge family systems that function even though they come from disparate backgrounds and, in many cases, have dissimilar expectations of what marriage and family should be. Dr. J. Lawrence Driskill has done a masterful job interviewing and writing up the case histories of 20 cross-cultural couples with church connections. He points out what the church can do to help these families resolve conflicts and establish happy homes.

He concludes, "Essentially this is a book about decent, courageous people struggling for recognition and justice" which also describes the necessary first step toward peace with justice in the Holy Land.

Narrow Gate Churches: The Christian Presence in the Holy Land under Muslim and Jewish Rule


Oxford-educated Arab journalist Atallah Mansour here recounts the history of the Arab Christian community in the Holy Land for the past two millennia. To protect their ancient churches from desecrating marauders on horseback, worshipers in the Holy Lands sealed up most of their doors centuries ago to keep the invaders outside their sacred halls. Thus the term, "narrow gate churches" was used to describe Christian churches in the land of our savior's birth. This fascinating history of how Christians have survived and prospered here down through the centuries under stressful conditions is a tribute to the faith of this remnant community and to the divine intervention on their behalf that helped them survive rather miraculously under hostile regimes and straitened conditions.

Pentecost of the Hills in Taiwan: The Christian Faith Among the Original Inhabitants


Written by Ralph Covell, Ph.D., this book concentrates on how the tribal peoples in Taiwan spread their Christian faith during the Japanese occupation of World War II. "The many rich details woven into this story come from firsthand observations and faithful archival research, portraying a mission work which could be held up as a representative model of missionary service in the second half of our century. There are many educational possibilities latent in this book. Mission's professors or missions directors in a local church could use it as foundational to a course examining what missionary work is about, for this record contains the basic component of the typical missionary situation. History and politics, cultural diversity, cooperation and fragmentation between church agencies all constitute the context in which the gospel challenges the spiritual reality of restless peoples around the world," says Dr. Arthur F. Glasser, dean emeritus of the Fuller Theological Seminary School of World Mission.
