"This book updates Anabaptist/Mennonite missiology in light of a half century of involvement in cross-cultural missions. It recognizes the importance of preserving deeply held beliefs while proposing new, more realistic, and positive advances in mission. "It is only in participating with God in his mission that the Anabaptist people and, for that matter, any denomination, finds fulfillment. So this book is not only a study of the church's mission but of the church itself." --The Author
" 'Pilgrimage in Mission' firmly grasps the foundation of mission in Jesus Christ, while exploring what missionary faithfulness requires in the coming decades. Donald R. Jacobs knows firsthand the exhilaration of being a pilgrim. His years in East Africa are an important backdrop to what he writes. This book exudes a biblically based optimism and enthusiasm about the future of mission." --Wilbert R. Shenk, Fuller Theological Seminary
