Author  Ian Campbell, Alison Rader Campbell and Robin Rader

Salvationists Alison and Ian have devoted their lives to health-related community development and integrated mission. Through participating with communities around the world, they have witnessed God’s healing grace and the amazing capacity of local communities to deal with crisis and conflict when appropriately accompanied.

In 2018 Ian embarked on a 28-day, 630-mile journey on the South West Coast Path in England. Sustained listening through daily encounters on the path led Ian to recall stories from the past 30 years and to reflect on and document their meaning. Each chapter represents one day’s journey on the path and focuses on a global community story, leading to a synthesis of learning around one theme. The interrelatedness of the themes and local stories encourages deeper consideration and reflection, and each chapter concludes with questions that take the reader forward to living out what has been learnt.

Walking with Communities will be attractive and useful to those already in community development and mission work, and anyone with a heart for real encounter with people and the healing presence of God in their neighbourhood community story. Fascinating photos and beautiful illustrations lead the reader through the narrative.

Ian Campbell and Alison Rader Campbell come with a broad range of international experiences. Australian Ian is a medical doctor and served as The Salvation Army’s medical advisor and health programme consultant at International Headquarters (IHQ) in London from 1990 to 2007.

Alison, who is from the USA, is a community development consultant, having served in Zambia and on the International Programme Facilitation team at IHQ. Today, Ian and Alison are independent facilitators in community health, development and mission.

Robin Rader is a USA-based librarian and asset-based community engagement practitioner. All worked at The Salvation Army Chikankata Mission Hospital in Zambia in the late 1980s and have sustained community, health and mission engagement for more than 30 years.
