Dear Colleagues in Global Mission,


We greet you in the High Name of Jesus our King and Victor. On behalf of the WEA Mission Commission we are pleased to announce the May 2007 release of our newest book in the Globalization of Mission series: “Worth Keeping: Global Perspectives on Best Practice in Missionary Retention”, written and edited by our colleagues Rob Hay, Valerie Lim , Detlef Blöcher, Jaap Ketelaar and Sarah Hay,

We are making a very special pre-print 52% discount offer through May 31, 2007 of this singular publication, which in part follows, but goes far beyond, the global research presented in “Too Valuable to Lose: Examining the Causes and Cures of Missionary Attrition.”

“Worth Keeping” is the product of years of work by the Mission Commission task force called ReMAP II, charged with the job of carrying out the attrition follow-up research but going far beyond into the areas of retention and best practices. The book presents the outcome of that 20 nation study, crafted and led by a team of international researchers and global cadre of associates. The 29 chapters and 58 case studies from around the world make the book unique.
