is it true? Jun 11, 2008
I thoroughly enjoyed reading through the stories in this book of how individuals and whole peoples have come to faith in Christ through the work of missionaries and the interventions of the Spirit. Outlining the centrality of missions from OT to NT would be very helpful for anyone not familiar with the OT roots of the Great Commission. However, my one major concern is that there is very little documentation of the contemporary stories, statistics, and anecdotes. The book says they can be found on the website, which is not the case. Google searches of some of the quotes, names, and facts in the book produced little to nothing. So while what's presented here is very inspiring, I want to see the documentation and source material before I go around telling people about it or using it in sermons or presentations. Just because it's inspiring doesn't excuse it from being verifiable and documented.
Expand your mind and heart Mar 18, 2008
William and Amy Stearns have done it again. They have produced a fresh, vibrant, "vision and passion expanding" book that takes every Christian out of their living room (or dorm room) right into numerous corners of the earth--to see and hear what God is doing in the lives of unreached peoples who are desperately hungry to know the God of the universe. Get it, read it, pass it on.
THE Pass-around Missions book Apr 9, 2005
I have been reading missions oriented books for years. This is one of those that I grabbed a few extra copies of to distribute. The authors were able to take the biblical basis for missions, weave in what God has been doing throughout history and present a wonderful picture of what He is doing RIGHT NOW. It was a real page turner and great motivator for Christians to get on board with what God is doing in the world. I heartily recommend it.
