"This book does not provide neutral ground. Once you've read it, you either hate it and reject it, or you love and embrace it. The 18 Inch Principle confronts us with a U-turn in the field of missions. Church and missions are not two separate realities: missions is constitutive to the Church. The very existence of the Church is missional. However, for Mike Burnard, mission is not entertainment, religious tourism, professional speeches, or philanthropic projects. Drawing from Biblical principles and a long experience with the persecuted Church, Mike argues convincingly that mission is both the embodiment of the Gospel in the life of every true believer and a clear proclamation of the Gospel to a lost world. Willingness to endure persecution, suffering and martyrdom for the Gospel is the genuine mark of Biblical mission." Paul Negrut (PhD), Professor of Theology, Emanuel University of Oradea, Romania and Pastor of the Emanuel Baptist Church of Oradea, Romania "I have finally finished reading the 18 Inch Principle. WOW! What an amazing, truthful book. I just wish every Christian could get their hands on a copy! I think the content of the book doesn't only apply to missions but to every God-fearing Christian. I have shed many tears throughout the book and after your conclusion I just wept. I have learnt a lot and it has been such a blessing to me!" Gigi Raimbault, Student at Africa for Jesus Mission School "One of the most profound books I have ever read. We are challenged in an unprecedented way to follow in the steps of Jesus. The commitment needed to bring in the end-time harvest is clearly spelled out. The plight of the lost millions without Jesus depends on our commitment to be obedient to a sacrificial lifestyle." Christo Walters, Missions mobiliser, Gauteng If you are looking for "fluffy feel good," then this book is not for you! Be prepared for a challenging read that will evoke raw emotion, disagreement, agreement, inspiration, and hopefully action. We have been given all things, equipped, washed clean, for the work God has called all of us to do. It's time to leave the physical building we like to call the Church (but isn't) and get out there and get busy! So strap yourself in, have your pen and highlighter handy, take your time, and thank God for this amazing journey. Curt Vahle, Just a guy from Indianapolis, Indiana

About the Author:

As a young sport student at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, Mike committed his life to the Lord in 1976. Immediately after his conversion, he was introduced to missions as he travelled to the Montreal Olympic Games on an outreach with Youth with a Mission. In 1979, Mike and Helen got married, and two years later, they left South Africa to join the Anastasis, the Mission Ship of YWAM, in Greece. The impact of experiencing a broken world without Jesus changed their lives irreversibly, and their travels around the globe confirmed their calling time and time again. Upon their return to South Africa, Mike and Helen were introduced to the ministry of Open Doors, the organization that specializes in ministering to Christians in closed countries. They knew this was where the Lord has placed them and joined Open Doors in 1987. For the next twentytwo years, Mike and Helen had the incredible joy of serving the Lord by serving his church in closed countries. He was able to minister into the former Eastern Europe and travelled extensively into Africa, the Arab World, Asia, and the Middle East. The privilege of eating, praying, and crying with those who have sacrificed all for the honor of bearing the cross of Jesus has left a deep impression in their lives. Mike served as national director of Open Doors South Africa before moving to the UK, where he was appointed as vice president development of Open Doors International. Mike and Helen moved back to South Africa in 2009 with a new vision to assist the local church to interpret news events from a biblical perspective and approaching mission more strategically. To facilitate this vision, INcontext Ministries was established in 2010 with a goal of assisting believers in UNDERSTANDING global events within a Kingdom context.
