Business as Mission from Asian, African, and Latin American perspectives

There are an increasing number of publications (books, articles, papers) on Business as Mission, BAM. Many are authored by Westerners from a Western perspective and these contributions are good and helpful. But it is not a fair reflection of the global BAM movement, since probably most practitioners and many thought leaders are non-Westerners or run BAM businesses in the Arab world and Asia.

Thus it was a joy to be a special editor for the BAM issue of the Connections Journal two years ago and invite friends and colleagues from all over the world to contribute. The journal contains articles on Business as Mission from thought leaders and practitioners from Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and North America
