    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."
