"40 Questions About the Great Commission is an indispensable text for any pastor, professor, or student who cares about the Christian mission. In it, a biblical scholar, missiologist, and seminary president join forces to answer every question you've ever asked—or never asked—about our Lord’s parting commission to his disciples. Substantive, lucid, and compelling." --Bruce Ashford, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"The church has one job. It is called the Great Commission. Every Christian soldier should know the who, the what, the why, and the where of the marching orders left by our Lord and Commander-in-Chief, and this book does just that in an engaging and encouraging way. Read it and then get on with it!" --James Merritt, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This book is a succinct and at the same time wide-ranging exposition of the commission of Jesus given to the disciples and thus to the church to proclaim the gospel far and wide. The authors elucidate the meaning of key passages in Scripture and thus present the geographical scope, the theological content, and important historical parameters of the mission of the church. This book deserves to be read by every Christian believer committed to the glory of God in all the world and to the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ." --Eckhard J. Schnabel, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Editorial Reviews

“This is a book on the Great Commission from every conceivable angle. The more I read it, the more excited I became. The writing is clear and concise. The arguments are compelling. The implications are inspiring. This is a book for anyone who wants to obey Jesus’s final command to make disciples of the nations.” -- Steve Addison, author of The Rise and Fall of Movements: A Roadmap for Leaders

“Excellent! Simply excellent! Akin, Merkle, and Robinson have produced a comprehensive, scholarly, yet, easy-to-understand work for the Church. Biblical, inspirational, and practical! The authors dig deeply into the Great Commission mine and, page-after-page, keep bringing up gold!” -- J.D. Payne, Samford University

“This is a very comprehensive book that brings clarity on the Great Commission theologically, historically, and with practical implications for the local church. Every follower of Jesus Christ should be equipped with the principles in this book in order to obey the Great Commission. We are entrenched in a battle for the souls of our family, friends, and neighbors; the tools and principles presented in this book are proven to aid in expanding God’s kingdom, until there is no place left where the gospel of Jesus Christ has not been preached (Romans 15:23). For me, greater than the book itself are the men who wrote it—men who are impacting the spread of the gospel by not only ‘knowing,’ but ‘being’ and doing Great Commission activities. These are men to follow as they make disciples of the nations!” -- Jeff Sundell, Chief Strategy Officer, E3 Partner and cofounder of the "No Place Left" movement

“This book is a comprehensive study on the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18–20 and related texts) and its multiple dimensions/aspects (i.e., what, who, why, where, when and how). It is organized in five parts (in content) and 40 questions (in format). It includes exegetical study of texts, historical review of the topic, and practical application. At the end of each question, there are reflection questions for discussion. This book is recommended for all those who are interested in the topic of the Great Commission and ready to carry it out in practical ways.” -- Enoch Wan, Western Seminary
