We here at Castle Publishing are excited to be launching an all-new Castle premier title: Konnichi wa Kiwi by OMF NZ Director Warren Payne. This a joint publishing effort between OMF and Castle Publishing.
Konnichi wa Kiwi is a really fascinating book. Primarily it is an autobiography in which Warren tells the story of how he and his young family served as missionaries in Japan between 1974 and 2000. It is an easy-to-read and often humorous account of what it’s like for an ordinary New Zealander to be faced with the cross-cultural challenges of a completely different culture.
Warren is passionate about seeing people go out into the mission field. So Konnichi wa Kiwi also includes study questions that will help people find God’s direction for their lives.
Warren is a brilliant and humble man who has been incredibly faithful in following God’s calling on his life. A few years ago he assisted in the publishing and promotion of the Castle classic Beyond Death and Dishonour by Michiharu Shinya. He talks about his experiences with that book in Konnichi wa Kiwi. It was great to be working with Warren again on this new book.
Konnichi wa Kiwi comes highly recommended, and is excellent value for money at just NZ$14.95 (rrp). For more info or to order copies, contact us. Ask for it at your local Christian bookshop.
