In this revised and updated edition of a modern classic, Bryant Myers shows how Christian mission can contribute to dismantling poverty and social evil. Integrating the best principles and practice of the international development community, the thinking and experience of Christian nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and a theological framework for transformational development, Myers demonstrates what is possible when we cease to treat the spiritual and physical domains of life as separate and unrelated.
En la primavera de 1995 Jimmy descubrió que tenía leucemia.
Durante un año de tratamiento, vivió en reclusión y silencio. Hasta 1998 los dibujos fueron toda su vida. Este libro recoge sus obras de dicho período, un mundo poético que se rige por sus propias leyes. En él, las ballenas bailan y cantan ante el asombrado y triste espectador. Las lágrimas de un conejo hacen brotar flores del suelo reseco. Los poetas nadan en piscinas sin agua, y las mariposas, con sus alas de mil brillantes colores, cubren a las muchachas con una preciosa colcha multicolor.
