“Beyond Literate Western Practices is an excellent set of case studies and essays on the power of orality to break through the challenges of existing educational models and provide new paradigms for the growing number around the world seeking to learn and grow. It addresses both the opportunities ready to be leveraged and the challenges that still must be overcome. There is a fresh and encouraging message that education can change and further engage the millions of oral learners in the Majority World who seek to grow in their faith, skills, and ministry effectiveness."
