Let's get started with the authors' definition of missions, "Missions is a specialized Term. By it I mean the sending forth of authorized persons beyond the borders of the New Testament church and her immediate gospel influence to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in gospel-destitute areas, to win converts from other faiths or non-faiths to Jesus Christ, and to establish functioning, multiplying local congregations who will bear the fruit of Christianity in that community and to that country."
The first section of the book, Encountering Mission in the Scriptures, is a tour of the scriptural content that demonstrates the unstoppable march of God's love for all peoples from creation until the end of the New Testament. God's message of hope and provision of salvation in Christ for all peoples is the summary of the Old and New Testaments.
In the second section, Encountering Missions in History, the authors describe the spread of the gospel throughout history and across the world until today. From the almost imperceptible beginnings of the Christian movement in Jerusalem the authors trace its expansion to become a global faith.
In the third section, Encountering Missions as a Candidate, the authors give practical suggestions to help interested believers discern how to decide to become a missionary, prepare to go, and choose an organization to be sent through.Read more ›

Love the first couple chapters. It gives a well explained narration of the OT and NT, and how it is that gentiles came into God's complex plan.Published 6 months ago by Mizael
