Item description for Every Nation in Our Generation: Recovering the Apostolic Mandate by Rice Broocks...
Overview Author Rice Brocks declares that the events of September 11, 2001, provide the church of today a unique opportunity to reach out to the lost and see a nation, even a world come to Jesus Christ. Brocks call this a turning point in history in which entire people groups are especially sensitive to spiritual maters and are looking for answers. The church can no longer bury its head in the sand and pretend that everything is OK. Instead, the church must be ready and willing to carry the message of hope and salvation to a lost and dying world. "Nations are beckoning to someone--anyone--to come and help." Brocks says that the church must be who responds to the call.
Publishers Description "Make Disciples of All Nations" In this book, Rice Broocks explains the progress of the Church in terms of its obedience to the apostolic mandate. This mandate, which has been called the Great Commission, must be recovered and embraced if the Church is going to get back into the race for the destiny of the planet. The orders of Jesus to His followers to "make disciples of all nations" is far more than simply giving people a basic gospel message. This mandate includes not only individual transformation, but cultural as well. About the author: Rice Broocks is the president of Morning Star International (MSI), a family of churches and ministries currently operating in 35 nations. He is also the senior pastor of Bethel World Outreach Center in Nashville, Tennessee, where he lives with his wife and their five children. He is the co-founder of Champions for Christ, a ministry to college and professional athletes, as well as the president of Victory Campus Ministries, reaching out to hundreds of university campuses around the world.

A JUNK ! Oct 9, 2007
A book to control people how to live their lives . Thats what this Apostolic Mandate is about.
This is our Mandate! Sep 23, 2004
A very select number of books in my library are categorised as "Life-changing" and this book is up there with the few of them. This is every Christian believer's mandate. Nothing more, nothing less.
We've discussed this extensively with my discipleship group and it has given us a clear vision on how to build and lay solid foundations in disciple making.
In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus' command to "Go and make disciples" was never optional nor reserved to an elite few. It is imperative that all of us obey. Rather than getting worried on being "Left Behind", let's go out there and don't be "Left out".
Oh For Fire To Burn in the Church Again! May 26, 2004
Remember the words of William Booth, John Wesley, George Whitfield, Jonathan Edwards, or Hudson Taylor? Probably not. That is because most "modern" Christians are caught up in the "How To's" of Church Growth professors and not truly seeking the presence of a holy and awesome God.
Thankfully God has raised up Rice Broocks. Rice leads Morningstar International Ministries out of Nashville, TN and his heart burns for God to be exalted among the nations in the spirit of Booth, Wesley, and Taylor. With this book he gives the Church a blueprint for radical evangelism of the nations. We must not lose the dream of seeing the nations won to Christ. We must not grow cold in our walks with God. We must love Jesus, burn with a fire for Him, and we must long for all nations to hear the gospel of our Lord.
This book will challange your prayer life, your walk with God, your hunger for revival, your love for the Word, and most of all it will challange you to make an impact in this generation for Jesus Christ. The world has yet to see what God can do with one man who is completely yielded unto Him.
A Blueprint For Discipling the Nations Jun 24, 2003
Read this book and then read Douglas Layton's My Father's Kingdom. These two books go hand in hand with one another. Rice Broocks presents a compelling argument on why and how the saints should go into places that no one has ever gone before. Rice presents a modern *Acts* story of how nations are being changed today and thus provides a sort of a telescopic view of what has happened where Acts closes and what has been continuing to happen NOW. Although this is book concentrates on the movement that Rice is involved in, it still presents a great challenge to those would like to follow in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul. Considering what Apostle Paul accomplished in an era without satellites, email or jet travel, Rice provides an answer (and also possibilities) to the question at the back of peoples' minds : "What would the Apostle Paul accomplish if he was living today". The last paragraph sums it all up for the would-be reader - the end-time army is not going to be composed of wannabe spiritual superstars but a multitude of faceless unknowns who are anointed and apointed. Read this at your own risk. This could ruin your life for the better. Readers of Rice first book "Change the Campus, Change the World" will be familiar with his thesis : the campus is where it's at! This books is a good summary of what has happened since he wrote the first book and how valid his original thesis was. Every CP should have this as a handy reference of what can be possible.
