Little Book, Great Read Jun 29, 2005
This book was an awesome presentation of our responibility in Advancing God's kingdom. McQuilken is great at choosing his words carefully for impact. It is a great book for anyone intersted in developing ministry leaders, especially for communicating God's heart for worldwide mission. Don't let the small size of the book minimize its impact-potential in your ministry.

A necessary reminder May 26, 2000
The Great Omission was reminder of how important it is to remember the command of Christ to disciple all the nations of the world. It challenged me to remember how important it is to deny ourselves and serve the LORD sacrificially as we carry our own crosses. There were two things that particularily struck me about this book. The first thing was the danger of emphasizing the tent-maker as the means of reaching the world. Although the tent-maker is needed and may be the only access into the closed countries of the world we still need many who like Apostle Paul will still be willing to go out and be a full time evangelist and church planter. Secondly, we must guard our minds and hearts against incorrect theology such as universalism. The necessity of sharing the gospel must never be put on the back shelf. We must obey the call. Finally, I really liked the appendix in the back of the book. He answers some basic objections that many people have today concerning missions that are just as true today.
Why Christians should engage in Foreign Missions. Mar 8, 2000
Dr. McQuilkin make a strong case for American Christians to get beyond selfishness and on to obedience of Christ's marching orders for His Church. Christ gave us the Great Commission five times after His resurrection. What was His priority for us before He returned to heaven? He told us five time in different words. We should understand by this that we are to "Go and Tell." But where should the church be going? We must go where the light is absent and where the area is darkest. When 90% of the workers focus on 5% of the people on the earth, it seems we are missing the mark of "every ethnic group" (ethnos) of the Great Commission in Mat. 28. We are not obeying Jesus. This book will help bring the priority of Missions into a clear perspective. Read this book and consider the Scriptures that it explains. The truth here will change your life.
Outstanding, easy to red Feb 1, 2000
It's a real shame this is out of print. This is a must read for anyone interested or involved in missions. It is extremely well written and based on sound biblical principals and data. McQuilkin is a gifted communicator who really will challenge the reader. It is a short book, filled with great information.
