Reviews - What do customers think about Missiology: An Introduction?
Awesome Book Jul 2, 2006
This book gives a very good overview of everything that has to do with Missions: the Biblical foundations, the history and different strategies used to advance God's Kingdom. All writers are having a Southern Baptist and/or IMB background, so that might make the content a little colored, but it is still worth it.
It is a good book if you want to have a very broad yet thorough overview of what missiology is all about.
Missiology: An Introduction to the Foundations, History, and Strategies of World Missions Feb 26, 2006
Excellent source for those seeking revelant information on world missions. I recommend this text for universities as well as local church congregations who desire to learn more about missions and what I believe Christian are called to accomplish in their lifetime.
Mark Terry, Seminary Professor AND Practicing Missionary Aug 31, 2005
I was able to meet Dr. Terry at a conference held by my church and found him to be a most enjoyable, approachable, and humble man. This book will be valuable to both the seminarian and layman as well. If you're preparing for missions, get this book.
Being both seminary prof (Southern Baptist Theological Sem.) and missionary, his experience plus knowledge makes for a cutting edge tool to "mish" from.
