Endorsements & Reviews-

Devoted to Christ honors a distinguished professor and administrator who teaches a central principle he lives daily. That practiced principle is that, in God's economy, shared power results in multiplied power.”

—Tom Steffen, Cook School of Intercultural Studies, Biola University



“In this book, honor/shame scholar Chris Flanders gives honor to his mentor, Fuller’s Sherwood Lingenfelter. This festschrift is the most significant reader in missiology of this generation! These classic articles on witchcraft, team relationships in globalization contexts, significance of minority languages, trusting partnerships, theology of power for changing times, and an incarnational model for awakening and releasing God’s people take missiology to a new level.”

—Gailyn Van Rheenen, Mission Alive
