Editorial Reviews


"Olson has written an introductory text that respects missiology's interdisciplinary nature, and treats the areas of concern for modern missionary ministry. ... a balanced blend of theory and practice. It has proven to be a useful textbook for introductory missions courses in Bible colleges and seminaries."
Dr. Keith E. Eitel, Professor of Missiology
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Just what the doctor ordered! Succinct yet comprehensive, solid but readable, creative yet biblical- ... has proven to be a boon to missions teachers, students and practitioners alike."
Dr. David J. Hesselgrave, Professor Emeritus of Mission,
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"A concise, highly readable introduction to the study of missions. ... a strong biblical and historical framework to view the world from God's perspective ... a good basic introductory text for mission education, solidly conservative and biblical."
Mike Stachura
Evangelical Missions Quarterly

This is one of the text books that Liberty University uses for GLST 200, Introduction to Missions. It is a scholarly book, and it's a must-have for your church library.
