A second volume of the same quality will be very welcome. -- Gerard Jansen Missiology: An International Review ... for the serious student of medical mission, and for those wishing to grapple with the roots of the twentieth/twenty-first century wave of healthcare mission, this book forms an extremely valuable source of detailed background information.
