In this book, Mark Baker suggests that much of North American Christianity might not stand up to the rigors of "real" life - that is, life that defies our familiar definitions, categories and black-or-white interpretations. Baker believes North American Christians must test their gospel by examining how it holds up under extreme conditions, like poverty and injustice. Drawing from his nine years of missionary work in rural Honduras, Baker offers such a test in this book. The resulting book is a bracing and refreshing study for laypersons, pastors, missionaries and mission strategists.
Mark Baker sympathetically and deftly observes Honduran church life and brings attention to areas of weakness in the North American church.
Baker earned his Ph.D. in theology and ethics from Duke University. A theologian and Mennonite missionary, he has observed and ministered to the church in Honduras for ten years. Currently, Baker serves as associate professor of mission and theology at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary in Fresno, California.
