Reflection Questions
  • The archeological evidence of pastoralists and horticulturalists in the middle of the Sahara speaks eloquently of the ecological significance of climatic changes. What missiological significance do you see regarding these long-ago dispersed peoples?

  • Describe how you would explain the relationship between the Vedic traditions and the Bible to a person who is new to cross-cultural ministry.

  • What role did disease, and the response of Christians to disease, play in the spread of early Christianity in Europe?
