Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded to you. #151Matthew 28:19-20 NIVThe study and practice of missiology is important to the Church today. Christ's commandment to go into all the world and tell others of God's love for them is central to every Christian's responsibility and purpose.Discovering Missions is a foundational textbook that examines the importance of missionary work overseas as well as within one's community. With perception and relevancy, it supplies understanding and awareness for important terms and practices related to mission work and strengthens one's calling to serve others and teach them about Christ. Objectives, sidebars, key-word lists, and discussion questions are included in each chapter to enrich the reader's study and comprehension.Discovering Missions offers capable, qualified teaching on the study of missions and is an valuable tool for seminaries and universities as well as pastors and laypeople seeking to increase their comprehension of missiology and its impact on the Church and the world today.
