MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. 7, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Innovo Publishing LLC released a new Christian title, The Missionary Family: Managing Stress Effectively, written by Dr. Jere Phillips. Hundreds of missionaries go home each year due to stress affecting themselves and/or their families. Hundreds of others remain on the field but struggle with reduced effectiveness from bearing the burden of stress. Through an integrated approach, The Missionary Family: Managing Stress Effectively discusses causes, effects, and management techniques in each part of the human being -- spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral.
The Missionary Family: Managing Stress Effectively is the result of Dr. Jere Phillips' more than forty years of ministry, including experience as a state-based missions administrator, pastor, and extensive overseas service on six continents. He is also a stress survivor. Motivated by two life-threatening illnesses, he began an intense study of stress management, which he has assimilated with over twenty years of interaction with missionaries in North America and internationally.
". . . should be required reading for all those who serve in a missions setting. . . ." -- Dr. John Mark Terry, long-time field missionary, seminary professor, and author, including Missiology: An Introduction and Developing a Strategy for Missions
". . . missionaries can understand their stress [and learn to] move forward and thrive in both their ministries and personal lives." -- Dr. Jeff Brawner, former missionary and chair of the Missions Department of Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary
