Author Bio

John Mark Terry (PhD, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) is professor of missions at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in Memphis, Tennessee. J. D. Payne (PhD, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) is pastor of church multiplication at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama. Both authors have also served as missionaries.

Endorsements

Strategies and tactics are closely related, but they are by no means the same. Strategy takes priority; strategy determines tactics. As the title indicates, this is a book on mission strategy--and a very good one. Moreover, it is not simply a book on this or that phase of mission; it lays out a strategy for fulfilling Great Commission mission. I commend it to the reading, study, and practice of missionaries and mission students, pastors and staff members, and all Christians who take the Great Commission seriously.
-David J. Hesselgrave,
emeritus professor of mission, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; cofounder, Evangelical Missiological Society

Some people are theoreticians, while others are practitioners. Some think, others do. In this remarkable piece, we see a unique blend of both. The authors are thinking-doers, much like our missiological predecessor the apostle Paul, and their work here is strategically important. Anyone of any generation interested in seeing local churches and mission movements advance for Christ's sake should read this book and apply its insights.
-Keith Eitel,
dean, Roy Fish School of Evangelism and Missions, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

John Mark Terry and J. D. Payne demonstrate how to develop strategies to reach people groups for Christ by first providing a historic panorama of the last two thousand years of missions strategy before moving to practical guidelines for strategizing in contemporary contexts. This stimulating project provides a comprehensive work of case studies and procedures for serving God in both the majority world and the West.
-Robert L. Gallagher,
Wheaton College Graduate School
