From the Back Cover:

WHEN THE NETWORK NEWS COMES ON AND SHOWS MORE AFRICANS SUFFERING FORM STARVATION AND DISEASE, ARE YOU TEMPTED TO TURN THE DIAL? When you read headlines about Latin American troops firing into a crowd of angry demonstrators, do you rush past it to the sports page? When you see the faces of Arabs who may never learn of Christ’s love, do you feel glad you weren’t born a Muslim? You’re not alone-even among believers. There is increasing pressure on Christians today to “seek personal comfort and ease, to look for a self-centered relationship with God,” writes Paul Borthwick. Instead of becoming world Christians, we’re becoming worldly Christians. A Mind for Missions helps you break that mold. In these pages you’ll discover ten building blocks for sensitizing yourself or your group to the needs beyond our borders. From prayer and giving to current events and lifestyle choices, Borthwick leads you to practical ways of sharpening your world vision right where you live.

About the Author:

Paul & Christie Borthwick serve on the staff of Development Associates International, a training group dedicated to the character and ministry development of leaders in the under-resourced world (www.daintl.org). Paul teaches missions at Gordon College (www.gordon.edu) and serves as an Urbana/ Missions Associate with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (www.urbana.org).

Paul's ministry focuses on three priorities: mobilizing others for cross-cultural ministry, encouraging the ongoing growth of older leaders, and motivating the development of younger leaders. He serves as a resource person, teacher, speaker, and author.

Rick Warren (in Purpose-Driven Life) cites Paul's books A Mind For Missions and How To Be a World-Class Christian as resources that "should be read by every Christian."

Paul and Christie's ministry together focuses on encouraging leaders and developing "world Christians" in the church. During their twenty-two years of service on the staff of Grace Chapel (Lexington, MA) - where Paul is ordained - they coordinated over 100 short-term service teams that served all over the world. Through Development Associates International, they now spend two to four months each year in ministry in other countries, mostly in the "Global South."

Christie serves both on the staff of Development Associates International, as a microbiologist at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and as a private practice Christian counselor. Both Paul and Christie graduated Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in May 2007: Paul received a Doctor of Ministry (Cross-cultural ministry) and Christie received a Master of Arts in Counseling.

Paul & Christie have been married since 1979 and live in Lexington, Massachusetts. They are members of Grace Chapel.
