What does it mean to teach English in the name of Christ? With thousands of Christians doing just that around the world, this book is a much needed assessment of the role it plays within missions.
Recent decades have seen an ever-increasing number of Western Christians going abroad as English teachers. Many of these teachers are going to countries that are not very receptive to other forms of Western Christian mission. Some Western Christians view English teaching primarily as a means to gain access to "closed" countries for the purpose of evangelistic outreach. Other Western Christians see it mainly as a form of social service.
Don Snow's well-thought-out details of how to bear witness, engage in ministry, serve the poor, contribute to peace, and build bridges of understanding clearly show the special role of Christian mission that Christian English teachers can have.
