First published in 1991, Missions and Money became a much-discussed book in American Christian missionary circles. In this revised edition, Jon Bonk offers new reflections in the light of a changed situation, one marked by increases in the number of short-term missioners and increases in the numbers of Asians, Africans, and Latin Americans who are leaving their homelands to serve as missionaries to other peoples.
The conversation on the ambiguity of wealth and Christian missionary outreach is deepened with essays by Christopher J. H. Wright on the righteous rich in the Hebrew Bible and by Justo González on faith and wealth in the Christian Bible and the early church.
Jonathan J. Bonk has served as director of the Overseas Ministries Study Center, the editor of the International Bulletin of Missionary Research, and is editor of the monumental internet-based Dictionary of African Christian Biography.
