Industry Reviews

Sam Reeves offers here a hope-filled vision of how two very different communities of faith- a Baptist congregation in African and a Christian Reformed church in Michigan- came together to form a relationship of mutual giving and receiving. We see in this moving account a story of building bridges across oceans and cultures and traditions- bridges of mutual respect, of two-way sharing of resources, and of visits on one another's turf.--Dr. Dennis Olson, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Princeton Theological Seminary
