  • Know Before You Go


    Each year, thousands of Americans board airplanes with an intense desire to make a difference in global poverty. They are driven by love for others and good intentions. But unfortunately, good intentions are not enough. Sometimes these well-meaning individuals end up harming the very people they are attempting to help.

    In Know Before You God, Gary Miller calls us to re-examine our short-term mission trips. His goal is not to discourage us from reaching out to other people and cultures, but rather, to help us rethink our methods and goals. If your aim is to actually help people in developing countries while avoiding long-term harm, this book is a must-read. There are things you should know before you go.

  • I Will Do A New Thing


    I Will Do A New Thing: Unreached Peoples and the Founding of the U.S. Center for World Mission.

    It all started when Ralph Winter gave an address at Lausanne called The Unfinished Task, urging the missions world to focus on a new type of evangelism to reach hidden or unreached peoples.
    Soon he and his wife Roberta were founding a center to help mission agencies fulfill that task. Around them gathered a group of experienced missionaries, computer scientists, and unusually dedicated young people in order to buy a college campus.

    This story, as told by Roberta, of their cliff-hanging prayer meetings and spiritual battles with a cult will reignite your determination to work with Jesus to finish the Father’s work (John 4).
    This new edition of Roberta’s book includes previously unpublished chapters from her original manuscript, and an updated epilogue inviting you to partner with the USCWM today, as the task remains unfinished.

    Don’t read this story unless you’re willing to have your horizons stretched, your faith tested, and your future disturbed. Continue Reading I Will Do A New Thing

  • Faith Seeking Understanding


    How does the Christian faith help us see into the true nature of life more clearly? Why do people suffer? Where do we come from? What does Jesus have to say to a changing world? What can we learn from great mission pioneers about seeking truth at the cutting edges of human knowledge? Faith Seeking Understanding explores such questions. Notable Christian thinkers such as Philip Yancey, Alvin Plantinga, Rodney Stark, Allan Chapman, Don Richardson, Yuan Zhiming, and more, share powerful insights that help answer the deepest questions people face in the twenty-first century from the perspective of Christian faith. Inspired by the lives and accomplishments of Ralph D. Winter and Paul Brand, this book seeks to apply the curious, open-minded, and compassionate spirit these Christian leaders exhibited to key contemporary questions in science, history, philosophy, theology, and comparative religion. The reader will gain a fresh appreciation for the intellectual challenges of the Christian faith, and some of most fascinating and sometimes controversial ways in which those challenges are being met.

  • Roland Allens The Ministry Of Expansion


    Roland Allen was one of the most influential mission thinkers of the twentieth century. As a High Church Anglican, he had great respect and value for Church tradition, but was quick to confront cultural preferences when they appeared to contradict biblical prescriptions.

    The Ministry of Expansion: The Priesthood of the Laity reflects his thoughts that dealt with Communion-related activities in the Majority World where the Anglican Church did not have well-developed church structures and priests. In this work, Allen argues that there are times and circumstances when non-clergy must take the lead in the administration of Holy Communion. Written around 1938, The Ministry of Expansion: The Priesthood of the Laity has remained unpublished until now. The work you hold represents one of the last book-length manuscripts written by Allen and includes a collection of articles by contemporary Allen scholars. Though nearly eighty years since he first put pen to paper, Allen’s principles and convictions still speak to the Church with great gravitas. What should be the response when the Church’s cultural preferences are unable to keep up with the work of the Spirit on the mission field? This was a not only a question in Allen’s day, but one for every generation of believers. Continue Reading Roland Allens The Ministry Of Expansion

  • Margins Of Islam


    What do you do when Islam does not adequately describe the Muslims you know? Margins of Islam brings together a stellar collection of experienced missionary scholar-practitioners who explain their own approaches to a diversity of Muslims across the world. Each chapter grapples with a context that is significantly different from the way Islam is traditionally presented in mission texts. These crucial differences may be theological, socio-political, ethnic, or a specific variation of Islam in a context but they all shape the way we do mission. This book will help you discover Islam as a lived experience in various settings and equip you to engage Muslims in any context, including your own. Continue Reading Margins Of Islam

  • Mission In Motion


    This book represents an historic and unprecedented piece of research. The research project took nearly ten years to complete from start to finish. It is not a longitudinal study but rather a snapshot in time, which took far longer to process than it did to take. Nevertheless, the picture that developed was well worth the wait. Our hope is that this work will remain relevant for many years to come and promote much discussion and interest to foster more effective mission involvement.

    As confirmation of the contemporary relevance of our project, while we were writing this book two localized studies were undertaken to investigate mission involvement in their contexts. How Australian Missionaries Are Being Called and Choose Mission Agencies (Hibbert, Hibbert, and Silberman, 2015) was researched in Sydney, Australia. Mobilizing More Missionaries: Insights from Surveys of Long-termers and Prospective Missionaries (McVay and Parrott, 2015) was the result of an online survey of 466 long-term missionaries from forty-six agencies undertaken in the United States.

  • Kingdom Missionaries Marcus And Narcissa Whitman


    Marcus Whitman, a medical missionary and Christian patriot, was the man who saved the Oregon Territory and assured it would be a part of the United States. Called to the Northwest by a desire to see the Indians taught the liberating principles of the Bible, the daring action of this man of destiny paved the way for the establishment of the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

    The tragic and sad end of the story of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman reminds us that the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church. Their story clearly reveals the providence of God in the march of history-that nations do not, in the words of historian George Bancroft, float darkling down the stream of the ages without hope or consolation, swaying with every wind and ignorant whither they are drifting but that there is a superior intelligence and love, which is moved by justice and shapes their courses. The Whitman’s story will also inspire us to practice heroic, patriotic, and Christian virtues.

  • Pilgrims With Purpose


    Read about a young couple who like Abram and Sarah of long ago set out on a journey, not really understanding their destination and future. They didn’t know about the adventures, joys, trials, testing (and rewards) that awaited them. They were united by a sincere and deep love for Jesus Christ and His word, and loved each other with love that endured with joy, fulfilling the true meaning of their wedding vows. As pictured on the cover of this book, David and Elizabeth have prayed, listened and obeyed, hand in hand on their amazing pilgrimage.

    This lifetime commitment has resulted in a ongoing ministry known as Seedtime and Harvest Ministries Inc, now under the capable leadership of their son, Philip, who with his brother Stephen and the addition of third generation family members, are pastors, youth leaders, teachers, Christian musicians and every facet of ministry. David and Elizabeth continue to minister in the Rios de Agua Viva Bible School, teaching in seminars and retreats, and offer family and ministerial counseling. Retirement is not yet a word they use, desiring instead to continue in the ministry until they are taken home. Continue Reading Pilgrims With Purpose

  • Pipeline : Engaging The Church In Missionary Mobilization


    What would it look like if your church really took the last words of Jesus seriously? The Great Commission was not just a suggestion by our Lord, but an imperative mandate given to his followers. Missionary sending agencies are deploying workers to the field, but many of them come from disengaged churches that are not producing well-equipped disciples. We need a fully integrated global supply chain-a pipeline-that has disciples as the precious commodity, as well as an effective infrastructure to distribute and replicate them around the globe. Pipeline seeks to re-engage the church in mobilizing the next generation of workers for the harvest. This is a collaboration of forty different authors from churches, agencies, and cross-cultural servants. As people in distant places wait for a messenger of hope and salvation, will your church venture into the pipeline? Continue Reading Pipeline : Engaging The Church In Missionary Mobilization

  • Into The Far Country


    The Great Commission remains an abiding challenge for Christians. What kind of an understanding of God is behind our thinking about mission. The author takes account of the Western Church’s continued failure to protect teh environment, the escalation of violence and tribalism, ideologies of exclusion and of the increasing gap between the rich and the poor. Tom Stuckey invites us to make a spiritual journey into a ‘far country’, in order to rediscover our missionary task. Reflecting in the biblical theme of covenant, he dares to suggest that the ultimate purpose of mission is the liberation of God. Continue Reading Into The Far Country
