Facing Danger: A Guide Through Risk

Book Overview
Facing Danger guides cross-cultural workers through a biblical discussion on risk, providing a spiritual and practical framework for working through cross-cultural risk assessment and management. In this book, Anna E. Hampton discusses: Four connections related to risk between the Old and New Testaments. Essential elements of cross-cultural risk assessment and management. Balancing the tension between the leading of the Holy Spirit, wise stewardship, and God's invitation to risk. Twelve risk myths often repeated to those who have a cross-cultural calling. A guide to writing a personal conviction on cross-cultural risk. Working through a systematic action plan on risk that integrates spirituality, faith, emotions, stewardship, and practical danger assessment. After living for almost a decade in the high-risk and dangerous environment of Afghanistan, Facing Danger works through how Anna attempted to raise her children without emotional and long-term trauma while simultaneously living out her calling to partner in a divine endeavor in a hostile culture. This is the real world where a biblical understanding of risk must work.
