Deeper into the Heart of Papua New Guinea - Kay Liddle


In Book One a 26 year old Kiwi began a fantastic journey Into the Heart of Papua New Guinea and commenced lifelong relationships with people he encountered on his pioneering ventures. Deeper Into the Heart of Papua New Guinea describes another 40 years of building on that foundation.

Exciting 'revival' movements with a distinctive Melanesian flavour in which the people embrace the Christian faith as their own; transfer of responsibility and ownership from mission to national church; leadership training at grassroots and national level; these are a few of the highlights.

Educated PNG young women and men share their inspiring stories of battling their way to recognition and success in the modern world.

A new paradigm of 'doing mission' through genuine two-way partnerships was developed. The concept of 'Business as Mission' was studied and used. 'MKs' got involved with their child time PNG mates in a variety of projects.

This is not only an absorbing story but also a valuable resource for those involved in the practice and policy of mission service today.

Join Kay, Gwen and family members on their journeys deeper into the heart of Papua New Guinea.

390 pages with full colour images.
