Is There Hope for Afghans?
Everyone has heard of the Taliban, but how well do we know the Afghan people? The winds of change are blowing through Afghanistan, one of the hardest countries in the world in which to be a Christian. How can Afghans build trusting, vibrant communities of believers? What are the best practices in discipleship?
Afghan Mountain Faith explores relationships, justice, and beauty in God's unfolding kingdom. These never-before-recorded accounts show Jesus's followers in their unique Afghan context. Their stories extend worldwide as Afghan fellowships arise globally, even though there is not a single church building inside their country.
Miriam Adeney and Rashid Aalish delve into challenging issues of our time, including refugees, women's rights, US military missions of mercy, church planting, ethnic identity, suffering, lament, orality, and ethnodoxology. If you want stories, there are stories. If you want strategies, there are strategies. If you want to wrestle with systemic issues, that is here too. These reflections will provoke you to think and propel you to hope.
