E-BOOK. According to the meta-study ReMAP, between 1992 and 1994 one missionary in twenty prematurely left mission service each year. This implies the loss of half of all mission­aries every thirteen years. With this in mind, it is widely thought that a clear sense of call serves to prevent such drop­out. This detailed and compassionate study of Mennonite women missionaries in Central Africa finds this to be true—in the short term. But in the long term, the sense of call itself tends to turn on the call—resulting in burnout and dropout. Through exten­sive field work, the author charts the course of mis­sionaries who re­mod­eled the call—turning its burden into blessing. This is embedded in a careful theo­lo­gi­cal analysis, drawing on a wide sweep of Mennonite thought and praxis.
