A Methodist Minister Applies Tongan Social Concepts in a New Zealand Setting
Rev. Siosifa Pole highlights Tongan cultural and social concepts and expolores how they relate to his experience as a minister in English language, NZ parish settings. He hopes the book will improve the understand by other people of the Tongan way of thinking and doing things.
The book's title, Fisi'inaua 'i Vaha, refers to the spray of sea water from the big waves that crashed on the double-hulled canoes in which his ancestors navigated the ocean to find new lands of opportunities.
