I met with the author Tom Wells years ago. We discussed my ministry in the Philippines and how that the church folk there were enjoying a study of the attributes of God. Tom told me at that time that his book was about the character of God. He gave me one and I so enjoyed it. I have over the years taken copies to the Philippines and continue to order them for the bible college and others in gospel ministry. This in my opinion is where the tire meets the road. In summary, above all else, keep your eyes upon the ever present I AM. He is most certainly our motivation and focus. This focus is most appreciated resting upon his perfections.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mission needs to be done with the right motive, that is, because God is worth knowing and worshipping, or as John Piper puts it, mission exists because worship does not. This motive should be the primary one while people's need is secondary. Tom Wells brings up some important points where he started with comparing the man-centered versus God-centered view of mission in dealing with question why it takes so long before a particular people's group is evangelized. The man-centered answer is because we do not do a good job according to what Jesus commanded, while the God-centered one, quoting William Carey, is God ordained it because He has reasons for delaying the evangelization of a particular ethic group. Wells later studies this attitude in the lives of David Brainerd, William Carey and Henry Martin.

Another good point Wells brings up is contrary to the focus on training and method to do mission, he contends that to do mission right, we need to increase our knowledge of God to the point where speaking of His glory becomes a natural part of us (p.28). I agree with what he said here without neglecting the need to study cultures. There is inseparable connection between our view of God, and our attitude toward mission and the way we do mission and the kind of missionary we shall be (p.36). No doubt faith is a critical ingredient. It must feed on God. Faith, to be robust, must have worthy thoughts of God (p.39).

Here is where I see the mediocrity is. When discussing the attributes of God, there is a better book that talks about it, The Attributes of God by Pink, for example.
