BOOK REVIEWS & INTERVIEWS
"If you’re married and engaged in cross-cultural ministry, this book belongs in your hands and then in your reference library. It’s not your average prescriptive marriage book, but carefully and competently tailored for folks in cross-cultural service. It accounts for a variety of roles and seasons."

"For each of these 'Stages of Cross-Cultural Transition' Kenny provides three valuable exercises. Yes, each couple will need a notebook; that totals 21 thought-provoking, soul-searching, practical excursions which will help process and document the experience. This will become a journal that promises to be integral to wherever 'next steps' might lead.
Do not sell this author short! One might think her youthful inexperience or Catholic background would some how disqualify her speaking to a broader audience. Not so! We highly recommend this little paperback is included in the backpack of those headed for the field, those on the field or those preparing for reentry."

"While the handbook concentrates on spousal dynamics, concepts presented and exercises offered can be effective for any two or more people serving in close proximity. Gleanings from this material could be utilized in a variety of contexts: team building, marriage seminars, and even personal self-discovery."

"Kenny's approach to marriage theology is meant to foster a strong sense of intentionality for couples. She portrays marriage as a vocation and a ministry that influences the world around it."

"Having lived and served as a Maryknoll lay missionary family in Latin America as a father and husband, I would encourage couples, family and mission directors/trainer to carefully appreciate the spiritual and practical advice Kenny offers in this book. In reading through it, I was powerfully reminded of the similar joys and difficulties we experienced in international service."

"I do believe that this book could be used for any couple working cross-culturally, whether of the Catholic faith or not. There are some real gems that will help strengthen your marriage – and that is something, I believe, we all want in married life. Strong and happy marriages."
