Review by Theo Robinson: "...Hale's strong emphasis on biblical attitudes makes the book well worth reading for anyone Concerned to live Christianly. ..The sections on intcrpersonal conflict are worth the price of the book. >From the call to the first furlough, Hale deals with the gamut of missionary life...Working as a team, accepting discipline, managing culture shock, dealing with lack of privacy, doing spiritual warfare, helping singles and missionary children to succeed are more typical missionary topics which he deals with at some length... As an encouragement to those considering missions for the first time, an upbeat Hale presents the life he and his wife have shared over 25 years as doctors in Nepal..."

Basic Training for Spiritual Warfare, by Neil and Yvonne Pirolo, Emmaus Road International, 1997, Paperback, 288 pages. This new book by Neal Pirolo, who wrote _Serving As Senders_ serves as a basic primer concerning spiritual warfare. "I hate war!" The author declares in his opening paragraph. "But my hatred for the enemy of our souls is greater than my abhorrence of war!" Making reference to over 700 Scripture passages that point to victory in battle, the author drives home the importance of understanding the basics of "spiritual warfare". Yvonne Pirolo adds, "Many people believe only the pastor or the missionary or the =other= person is confronted by the enemy. We need to recognize and be prepared for the specific times and ways the enemy hassles all committed Christians in their daily living and how to apply God's solutions." Each chapter is followed by practical insights written by Yvonne from her experiences. Real problems are followed by biblical solutions to gain victory in Christ. $5.75 from William Carey Library, which offered this book review. (1-800-MISSION)

REACH AROUND THE WORLD--52 Global Awareness activities for Christian Youth (US$13 + postage)-order through ACMC address above

(edited by Harvie Conn) There are many ways of defining "unreached", and many different estimates of the numbers, but the priority on penetrating new areas is obviously important. There's also a good chapter on new MEANS of reaching the unreached--tentmaking, third-world missionaries, data gathering & processing, students in missions, women in missions, etc., showing the pro's & con's and lots of good insight. The next-to last chapter was on building renewal structure into an institution and the importance of people over programs. Leaders must have vision for the future and not just be fine-tuning an old structure. God works through organization, so there is a balance between constantly- changing relationships and slow, unadaptible institutions. It is good to periodically discard old programs and start new ones--often based on the suggestions of people on the fringe of your group. The last chapter on influencing seminaries spoke of the "missionary dimension"--all disciplines should have a missionary dimension instead of missions being a separate course or somebody else's business; Missions is integral to the Church and should be treated as a part of all its functions. This book is quite a kick in the head because it came out of a consortium of missiologists from a seminary--I found it challenging to wade through. But it does give a good view of the history, definition, & strategies related to reaching unreached peoples. ($8.95 from Presbyterian & Reformed Publishing Co., P.O.
