'Vital'...pertaining to life; essential; of critical importance.
'Missions'...specific tasks to which a person or group is charged.
'Issues'...a point or matter, the decision of which is of special or public importance.
A dictionary can define the terms, but tackling the tough texts and difficult issues of world evangelism requires skillful study and balanced reflection upon the whole of Scripture.
'Vital Missions Issues: Examining Challenges and Changes in World Evangelism' draws upon the insights and study of numerous evangelical scholars and writers to address crucial issues in world missions.
Some of the chapters included are:
"The Destiny of the World and the Work of Missions" by Michael Pocock "The Fate of Those Who Never Hear" by Millard J. Erickson "Missions in Cultural Perspective" by George W. Peters "Missions in a Religiously Pluralistic World" by George W. Peters "Paul's Corporate Evangelism in the Book of Acts" by George W. Murray
Church leaders, missionaries, and evangelists will appreciate the helpful scholarship of 'Vital Missions Issues'.
