About this title

Synopsis:

“In a rapidly changing world,... the central missionary vision of the church must be constantly renewed, lest its foundations become lost in the confusion of change or its practices trapped in missionary models of the past.”

In this second edition of Missions, long-time missionary Gailyn Van Rheenen revises and updates his classic text on Christian missions, laying sound theological and strategic foundations for the missionary of today and tomorrow.

Van Rheenen helps renew the missionary vision by discussing areas such as:

  • The history of Christian mission, and how it affects where we are today
  • Spiritual formation for God’s mission
  • The missionary cycle
  • Cross-cultural communication
  • The character and calling of missionaries
  • Types of missionaries
  • Church maturation
  • Selecting mission fields
  • The role of money in missions
  • Four levels of involvement in missions

But Missions is more than blackboard theory. Written by a long-time missionary, it carries the conviction and insights of one who has lived his subject. Accessible to students, practitioners, and laypeople alike, Missions provides a primary go-to resource for understanding and becoming involved in the dynamic activity of world missions.

From the Publisher:

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.
