Published in cooperation with Mennonite World Conference, an African and an American reflect together.

As the "center" of Christianity has moved south to Africa, Asia, and Latin America, what gifts can churches in different parts of the world share with each other? Are churches in Europe and North America willing and able to receive as well as give?

Who's rich? In what? Who's needy? In what way? How is sharing different than giving? How do we overcome the real obstacles that obstruct this essential part of being the church?

The authors hope that "this book can be used by churches and individuals of any denomination who are interested in similar goals."
