Mission Frontiers 39, 4 (July-August 2017)

The July-August 2017 issue of Mission Frontiers, published by the U.S. Center for World Mission, contains a number of articles on ‘The Roma’.

Editor Rick Wood writes:

‘The Roma, they are the people of myth, legend and media creations. They are commonly known by the name, Gypsy, given to them by outsiders. Most of us have images in our minds of what “Gypsies” are like even though the vast majority of us have never gotten to know someone who is Romani...

‘The only way to overcome these stereotypes is to confront them with the truth. That is what we are doing with this issue of Mission Frontiers. We are allowing actual Roma people to speak for themselves – to give you a glimpse into the reality of who they are, their struggles, and their passion to make Jesus known among their own people.’

Individual articles can be accessed from here, and the whole issue (5.3 MB) can be downloaded as a pdf here.
