About-

Christianity is the world's most global faith.
Meanwhile, evangelical Christianity is the world's fastest-growing major religion in terms of conversion growth.
And yet, at the dawn of the third millennium, the church's primary task to "go and make disciples of all nations" remains undone. Missions in the Third Millennium charts twenty-one trends--both positive and negative--with continuing significance for the Great Commission community in the twenty-first century.

Revised and updated to include two new chapters on urban missions and evangelizing Muslims, this up-to-date volume offers insights to help students, churches, missionaries, agencies, and Christians from outside the West grasp the big picture and take practical steps for more effective involvement.
This edition contains extensive notes, expanded suggestions for further reading, and discussion questions.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Necessary reading for anyone who wants to understand the issues that mission agencies and missionaries must face if we are to carry out our work in the new millennium."
--Scott Moreau, Chair, Missions and Intercultural Studies, Wheaton College, and Editor, Evangelical Missions Quarterly
"Stan Guthrie does us a great service of sketching the panorama of change."
--David Neff, Editor, Christianity Today
"Guthrie's delightful, readable little book does what no other book does. It is simple, sane, and sensible as it briefly but very astutely explores all of the major dimensions and issues of missions today--touchy or not!"
--Ralph Winter, Founder of US Center for World Mission
"Essential reading for Christian leaders in churches and all walks of life who are concerned for the health and growth of the Kingdom of God."
--Patrick Johnstone, Operation World
