While globalization gives North American Christians unprecedented opportunities to influence the world, we need to take care not to slip into a type of postmodern colonialism in which we make ourselves the experts or the 'hero come to save the day.' The day has come when all of us who influence or practice missions need to intentionally guide others to look to God and to their own communities for resources, solutions, creativity, ingenuity, hard work, and interdependence, instead of making them perpetual recipients of all the good things we can do for them. In We Are Not the Hero, missionary Jean Johnson shares lessons learned from her sixteen years in Cambodia, in an area known as the Killing Fields, including why our North American culture, church experiences, and financial solutions to church growth will not work elsewhere.

About the Author:

Jean Johnson served as a missionary with the Assemblies of God for sixteen years in Cambodia. Presently, she is an international teacher, trainer, and coach with World Mission Associates in Lancaster, PA. Jean holds a BA in cross-cultural communications from North Central University, Minneapolis, MN, where she worked as a missionary-in-residence, developing curriculum and teaching classes on church planting, global perspectives, missiology, and language acquisition.

Review:

“My only disappointment is that I never had the opportunity to read a book like Jean's 10 years ago when I first moved to Haiti with very little cross-cultural ministry training. I recommend this book to every new missionary preparing to enter a cross-cultural field, as well as to any veteran missionary who would like to take steps toward indigenizing an existing ministry.”
- Daniel Carl, missionary to Haiti and co-founder of International Living Stone Ministries, Omaha, Nebraska
“New Testament guidelines for multiplying churches leap out with startling clarity from sharp, action-packed examples that need no abstract explanation. Had I read this before going to the field, I’d have avoided serious and painful cultural errors.”
- Dr. George Patterson, originator of Train and Multiply and author of Church Planting Multiplication Guide
“A treasure of interesting personal incidents as well as the gleanings from other like-minded experts in the field of missions. I enthusiastically endorse (Jean’s) book as a convincing incentive to review our mission vision and to modify our mission efforts!”
-Steve Saint, missionary to the (Ecuadorian) Waodani tribe, author of End of the Spear and Walking His Trail, narrator of Beyond the Gates of Splendor.
