Product Description

As the first volume of the Encountering Mission series, this book provides a broad overview of world missions. The book is divided into five major sections. The first two provide the biblical and theological basis for missions as well as a historical survey. The following three sections consider the practical issues and contemporary challenges involved in mission work.

The authors incorporate a number of features that add focus and insight to their broader survey. Chapters close with a case study to focus on important issues and concerns. There are also numerous sidebars, maps, and charts throughout the text that provide further details on particular subjects and raise questions for discussion. A teacher's manual (available on CD-ROM) includes additional case studies, historical documents, and PowerPoint slides for classroom presentation. As a bonus, a free CD-ROM containing the Evangelical Dictionary of World Missions is included in the back of each book. This comprehensive reference work contains over 1,400 articles on the theory, practice, theology, and history of mission.
A. Scott Moreau is professor of missions and intercultural studies at Wheaton College Graduate School in Wheaton, Illinois. He is the general editor of the Evangelical Dictionary of World Missions.

Gary R. Corwin is associate editor of Evangelical Missions Quarterly, special representative with SIM (Serving in Mission), and a visiting lecturer at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Gary B. McGee is professor of church history and Pentecostal studies at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri
