Join the ACFAR Network

As my family prepares to minister in East Africa, one way that I am equipping myself for missionary service is by reading a lot of helpful books. This is one reason why you're going to be seeing a number of book reviews over the coming months. At the same time, I greatly appreciate the insight that others bring into discussions surrounding the defense our faith and building biblical discernment globally.

The New Faces of ChristianityWhat if I could somehow bring these two together? What if interested and knowledgeable people could slowly read through and analyze a book, discussing the issues it raises and thinking through how to apply them in our East African ministry? Now there is an answer: the ACFAR Network.

The ACFAR Network is a community of evangelical Christians that want to work together toward making a difference in Uganda and throughout the region. We will begin by reading through The New Faces of Christianity: Believing the Bible in the Global South by Philip Jenkins. Starting in January, the ACFAR Network will read and discuss one chapter a week for two months.

Would you like to be a part of this exciting new group? Join now! All it takes is two months of reading around 20 pages a week and posting your thoughts, comments, questions, and/or critiques. Interested? Simply buy a copy of the book (it should be available online or at most bookstores) and enter your name below. I look forward to seeing how God will use us to impact East Africa with His truth!
