Written as Julie Ma hiked the mountains to share God's news, this is a missiology book for the church which liberates missiology from the specialists for every believer. Nevertheless, it also serves as a textbook that is simple and friendly, and yet solid in biblical interpretation. This book links the biblical teaching to the actual and contemporary missiological setting, thus serving two important purposes. Examples are clearly given which aid understanding, and the biblical development is brought in to our contemporary setting, thus making the Bible come alive.

"Two important new factors characterize the Christian mission in our area: internalization and the growing Pentecostal movement. Therefore I welcome this contribution to mission theology from a Korean scholar, a woman who works both in village tribal evangelism and theological education." --Paul E. Pierson, Dean Emeritus, School of Intercultural Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Do more than enjoy Julie Ma's beautifully-written strategy. May it prompt a whole new involvement of the whole body of Christ to a renewed sense of prayer, service, and study of God's Word. All too frequently the biblical basis for carrying out this strategy is referred to somewhat summarily. But Scripture is the key to our understanding and the ministry of the Holy Spirit's powerful use of that Word of God." --Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., from the Foreword
