Product Description

Missions is a multi-faceted and theologically deep issue that many (even those inside Christian churches) do not understand at a rudimentary level. In Discovering Missions, Charles Gailey and Howard Culbertson provide a handbook covering missions from many angles, concentrating on modern missions and encouraging the readers' participation in it. From volunteerism to prayer, organizational models to philosophies of missions, the authors cover much ground in presenting and outlining a biblical framework to global missions work.

Publisher's Description

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded to you. &#151Matthew 28:19-20 NIVThe study and practice of missiology is important to the Church today. Christ’s commandment to go into all the world and tell others of God’s love for them is central to every Christian’s responsibility and purpose.Discovering Missions is a foundational textbook that examines the importance of missionary work overseas as well as within one’s community. With perception and relevancy, it supplies understanding and awareness for important terms and practices related to mission work and strengthens one’s calling to serve others and teach them about Christ. Objectives, sidebars, key-word lists, and discussion questions are included in each chapter to enrich the reader’s study and comprehension.Discovering Missions offers capable, qualified teaching on the study of missions and is an valuable tool for seminaries and universities as well as pastors and laypeople seeking to increase their comprehension of missiology and its impact on the Church and the world today.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a veteran missionary as is co-author Chuck Gailey. I spent years in Italy and Haiti while he was a missionary in Africa. I've been teaching at Southern Nazarene University for more than 15 years while Gailey just retired from Nazarene Theological Seminary.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  We wanted to produce a usable introductory book on the global mission enterprise that would excite as well as inform.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The primary audience are students in introductory missions courses in Bible college, universities and seminars. This overview of the global mission effort is, however, written in a way that makes it easily accessible to pastors and local lay leaders.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The book leans heavily on Scripture and draws from the words and actions of greats like William Carey, David Livingstone, Hudson Taylor, William Cameron Townsend as well as lots of lesser-known, but significant missionaries.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  It's for the future missionary as well as the future pastor.
