How does the church communicate God's unchanging message in an ever-changing world? Missions: Biblical Foundations and Contemporary Strategies gives answers by showing the methods and motives for successful missionary work.
It lays sound theological and strategic foundations for the missionary of today and tomorrow. But Missions is far more than blackboard theory. Written by a long-time missionary, it carries the conviction and insights of one who has lived his subject. Gailyn Van Rheenen's true-life examples sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous-shed a fascinating, personal light on the missionary cycle, cross-cultural issues, church maturation, selecting mission fields, and other vital topics.
This distinctive book both provides answers and provokes questions. Stimulating, comprehensive, and highly readable, it will engage readers on every level -- spiritual, intellectual, and personal.
