Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bill and Amy Stearns have written a book that demands attention.... their message is strong and sobering." -- In The Library Review

The authors’ enthusiasm for the subject is evident... a vision of what God is doing globally..." -- CBA Marketplace Feb. 2005 © CBA MARKETPLACE Official Publication of CBA. Reprinted by permission

From the Inside Flap

"Awesome! Apparently, if you combine a truly professional writing team with personal, intimate (and dramatic) familiarity with exotic places and ministries all over the world, you have a page-turner of both substance and value. Nothing like it!" --Ralph D. Winter, General Director, Frontier Mission Fellowship

"Nobody writes stories about how God is advancing His kingdom around the world like Bill and Amy Stearns! If you've somehow thought you were on the 'losing team' as a Christian, get this book and discover all that God is doing in making His name famous among the nations!" --Bob Sjogren, President, UnveilinGLORY

"Bill and Amy have done it again. They have taken the complex and made it fresh and practical--from hard-hitting illustrations to challenging applications. 20/20 Vision will help every pastor prepare mission messages that will inform and inspire. If you have been looking for a book that shows the sweep of God's purposes for his glory among the nations, 20/20 Vision is it." --Jim Killgore, President, ACMC (Advancing Churches in Missions Commitment)

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Avid Reader on June 11, 2008
Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed reading through the stories in this book of how individuals and whole peoples have come to faith in Christ through the work of missionaries and the interventions of the Spirit. Outlining the centrality of missions from OT to NT would be very helpful for anyone not familiar with the OT roots of the Great Commission. However, my one major concern is that there is very little documentation of the contemporary stories, statistics, and anecdotes. The book says they can be found on the website, which is not the case. Google searches of some of the quotes, names, and facts in the book produced little to nothing. So while what's presented here is very inspiring, I want to see the documentation and source material before I go around telling people about it or using it in sermons or presentations. Just because it's inspiring doesn't excuse it from being verifiable and documented.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Missions Guy on April 8, 2005
Format: Paperback
I have been reading missions oriented books for years. This is one of those that I grabbed a few extra copies of to distribute. The authors were able to take the biblical basis for missions, weave in what God has been doing throughout history and present a wonderful picture of what He is doing RIGHT NOW. It was a real page turner and great motivator for Christians to get on board with what God is doing in the world. I heartily recommend it.

Format: Paperback
William and Amy Stearns have done it again. They have produced a fresh, vibrant, "vision and passion expanding" book that takes every Christian out of their living room (or dorm room) right into numerous corners of the earth--to see and hear what God is doing in the lives of unreached peoples who are desperately hungry to know the God of the universe. Get it, read it, pass it on.
