A comprehensive look at Short-Term Mission:
What’s going right
What’s going wrong
And how to redeem it

Praise for Consuming Mission:

“At last, a scholarly work that lays bare the realities of the mission trip industry—both the benefits and blemishes. Haynes leads us toward a much-needed foundation of mature theology to undergird this third wave of global missions. Excellent.”
—Robert Lupton, author of Toxic Charity

“Combining rich theological reflection along with empirical, ethnographic data, Haynes offers a critical look at how the church can develop and engage short term mission as part of the missio dei. There is no other work currently available that does more to bring together the growing research on short term mission with theological resources at the service of the church than Robert Haynes’ work.”
—Brian Howell, Wheaton College
