A Vision for Missions

Wells, Tom

“Can it be that we who claim to know God best have turned a blind eye toward a dying world? Could that possibly happen?” Although fundamental to the identity of the church, missions have suffered in a skeptical age. Now it is more critical than ever to understand why missionaries go and how they can stay on the mission field, even in the face of rejection and resentment.

Product Description

In his book, A Vision for Missions, Tom Wells writes with the conviction that Christians must come back to first principles. Human need and world conditions are not the starting point. The Gospel is a call to know and worship God, and the primary conviction of the messenger must be that God is worthy to be known. The missionary vision must begin with the vision of God. Only then can the Church truly respond to the command to ‘declare his glory among the nations’.

This is a challenging book, and equally relevant to Christians at home and abroad. It treats missionary endeavour not as a separate interest but as basic to Christianity itself. By reference to Brainerd, Carey and Martyn the author also shows the true inspiration which lay behind the missionary movement of the 18th and 19th centuries.
