About the Author

Paul Borthwick is senior consultant for Development Associates International and teaches missions at Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts. His books include A Mind for Missions, How to Be a World-Class Christian and Six Dangerous Questions to Transform Your View of the World. Femi B. Adeleye (M.Th., University of Edinburgh) is a Christian minister and ordained priest in the Anglican communion. He is associate general secretary for partnership and collaboration for the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES). He previously served as regional secretary for the IFES movement in English-speaking Africa.

He is the author of Preachers of a Different Gospel (Zondervan, 2011). He is currently pursuing a doctorate in African Christian history from the Akrofi-Christaller Institute of Theology in Ghana.


"Borthwick's insights and recommendations, the product of decades of extensive world travel, research, teaching and strong relationships with leaders in the Global Church, make this book a valuable resource for anyone involved in long or short term cross-cultural missions, and for those who are calling them out and preparing them to go."--Hayward Armstrong, Renewing Minds
"Borthwick introduces Western readers (especially Americans!) to what they need to know to engage the diversity of global Christian faith. Offering both critique and encouragement, he reminds us of how Americans perceive themselves and how they are perceived by sisters and brothers around the world. It's a solid dose of humility to offset our pride at being so-called world leaders."--Scott Moreau, "The 2014 Christianity Today Book Awards," Christianity Today, January/February 2014
"Professors and students of missions will find this a supportive companion to other readings. He remains frank, yet humble, and positive from start to finish. The wider this book circulates in schools, churches and mission agencies, the better for the advancement of the good news in this country."--Paul W. Shea, Evangelical Missions Quarterly, October 2013
"This book provides practical ideas on how the Western church can best continue in global mission--without being paternalistic or creating dependency--by using its human and material resources with strategic wisdom marked by a posture of humility, purposeful reciprocity and partnership equality."--Robert L. Gallagher, Outreach Magazine, 11th Annual Resources of the Year: Global Outreach "Also Recommended," March/April 2014
