Format: Paperback
The author has an intense passion for directing people to God's call to missions, especially missions among those who have not heard the Gospel of Christ before. In the limited space in which he talks about this, I think he makes a good case. As someone who is involved in overseas missions myself, I affirm this passion.

However, the author spends much time indirectly attacking those who don't follow his focus on one aspect of bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth. He sees getting people to heaven when they die as being the purpose of Christianity, and preaching about Jesus to those who haven't heard yet as the only responsible way to get more people there. When he talks about why people aren't fulfilling the Great Commission in the manner that he would prefer, he speculates that they might be lazy, or perhaps self-centered. The book in general implies that perhaps they don't know the Bible and God's intentions for us well enough.

But what if following Christ is more than just having the right information and enough motivation? What if Christ's call to us is about living full and eternal life within the Kingdom of God right here, not just when we die? Perhaps the issue isn't that people don't have the right information. Perhaps the issue is that they haven't seen enough Christians living out Christian life to the fullest. There is a lot more to following Christ than knowing and affirming the basic facts about who Jesus is, and we need more people who are following Christ to the fullest in every part of the world, not just the "unreached" areas. If people were giving over their whole lives to Christ in the places where Christians already are, there wouldn't be nearly as much difficulty getting more workers to give up their lives to go where Christians currently aren't.

This book was an awesome presentation of our responibility in Advancing God's kingdom. McQuilken is great at choosing his words carefully for impact. It is a great book for anyone intersted in developing ministry leaders, especially for communicating God's heart for worldwide mission. Don't let the small size of the book minimize its impact-potential in your ministry.
