Publisher's Description

Christians of all ages recognize the heartbeat of God to take the Gospel to the nations and wrestle with the implications of the Great Commission in their own lives. The Missionary Call explores the biblical, historical, and practical aspects of discerning and fulfilling God's call to serve as a missionary.  Pointing the reader to Scripture, lessons from missionary heroes, and his own practical and academic experience, Dr. Sills guides the reader to discern the personal applications of the missionary call. 

Author Bio

M. DAVID SILLS (Belhaven College; New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary; Reformed Theological Seminary) is a professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He joined Southern Seminary after serving as a missionary in Ecuador. Dr. Sills is the author of The Missionary Call and two books on the Highland Quichua: Quichuas de la Sierra and Capacitacion Pastoral En La Cultura Quichua. David and his wife, Mary, have two grown children.

Editorial Reviews

"The Missionary Call by Dr. David Sills is a valuable, objective and comprehensive review of this subject. Distorted perceptions and misunderstandings regarding who is called and what consists of a call to missions abound, but Dr. Sills deals with every perspective from a biblical and practical consideration. This book will be a valuable contribution to the church mobilizing God’s people to be obedient to our Great Commission task."
-Jerry Rankin
President, International Mission Board
 
"Dr. Sills leads his readers through a methodical evaluation of the complexities of a missionary calling without being formulaic or unnecessarily mysterious. This book should be in the toolkit of anyone exploring a calling to cross-cultural ministry. I will recommend it to all of Wycliffe's candidates"
-Bob Creson
President, Wycliffe Bible Translators
 
"There is a crying need today for men and women who are willing to give their lives to the great cause of proclaiming the Gospel to the nations. Dr. David Sills offers practical help in thinking through the call to missions-from discerning whether God has called you to missions, to determining how and where you should serve. A scholarly missiologist with hands-on missionary experience, Dr. Sills provides sound pastoral advice to Christians wondering if God might be calling them to spend their lives as missionaries in the service of the Gospel. I am absolutely confident that this book will make a big difference in many lives."
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

    What does it mean to be "called to missions"? This is a critical (and sometimes gut-wrenching) question for the committed Christian who is seeking to find God's will for his life. David Sills, a veteran missionary himself, does a masterful job of answering by means of Scripture, observation, and common sense. Although the Bible does not speak of a "missionary call," Sills argues that it is real and explains how the Lord not only calls but confirms that call through what he describes as "interior" and "exterior" means. That the precise nature of the call is not the same for all is demonstrated by the author who puts forth biblical and historical examples. He includes a chapter in which he considers how a number of "missionary heroes" sensed and responded to their calls. A strength of the book is the manner in which some of the "problems" of the missionary call are addressed, such as the specificity and timing of the call and the situation where one partner in a marriage believes he or she is called and the other does not share that calling. Sills also discusses many of the challenges of getting to the field and the hindrances while there. This book is extremely helpful in looking past the "romanticism" of missionary service and anticipating the often unexpected realities faced by prospective missionaries. In our rapidly changing global context, no longer are intercultural missions always "overseas." Mission opportunities among internationals frequently exist in our own cities. Those "called" to missions are encouraged to think beyond stereotypical mission forms. As a pastor who eagerly anticipates those whom God will call from our church, I plan to widely recommend this book to those who are considering the "missionary call."
