Product Description

Although written as a response to the Missions Conference of 1901, its summons to action for missions is as burning and contemporary as when first issed. The Key to the Missionary Problem is a book of great intensity, which sounds forth a rousing and solemn call to new activity, fresh consecration and more abundant prayer for the cause of missions. Andrew Murray deals intelligently, knowledgeably, and spiritually with the improtant issues of missions set their historical perspective and in the context of the Church worldwide.

    Overall I would recommend this book to read. It is not a definitive or exhaustive look at missions, but it does help us in the 21st century get a perspective outside our own generation.

    Andrew Murray wrote this book a little over 100 years ago in response to a missionary conference that he was not able to attend. He is responding to what they did and did not say at the conference. The "missionary problem" that Mr. Murray is writing about in this book is the lack of concern and burden within the church as a whole for the gospel to expand to unreached places in the world. He says the "key" to this problem is that the problem is a symptom of a deeper spiritual problem and a lack of love for Christ.

    I really liked Chapter 3, which was about how the Moravian church was established in the 1700's and while being a small church sent so many missionaries around the world. Mr. Murray looks at their heart and from where their emphasis on world missions came. Toward the end of the book when he begins to look at what our response should be to this problem, he greatly emphasizes prayer, examining our own hearts, and seeking God. In our age when everyone has a list of things to do to address a problem, Mr. Murray knew that the only fruitful change in the church is accomplished by the Holy Spirit working in us. Mr, Murray's solution is what we need to hear.

    The most frustrating thing to me about this book is Mr. Murray's lack of Bible references. He rarely backs up anything he saws with the Bible, which made me wonder if he was only giving his ideas and not expounding God's ideas.
