Missionary Myth Vivian R Palmer Harvey
The Missionary Myth, Through the Eyes of a Missionary Kid tells my story.
Beginning with her birth in Africa, the author tells the fascinating story of her childhood on the mission field. Ironically, the same belief system requiring missionaries to abandon their children to boarding schools also harms the very natives they seek to reach, exploiting children and nations alike. The Missionary Myth opens the door to finding real solutions: challenging the missionary concept, questioning current policies, and reaching out to victims. Boarding school abuse is one branch of a much broader problem, and today’s church begs for constructive critique if it is to maintain an important role for people of faith.
