"Rightly and urgently calling the separation between social action and evangelism to be both unbiblical and absurd, the sixteen contributors to this encyclopedic book reward the reader with an astonishing wealth of biblical insight, theological wisdom, and critically analyzed field experiences. I rejoice in the mature perspectives presented in this engaging book and strongly recommend it to everyone who cares about the future of the kind of 'wholistic' ministry taught and practiced by Jesus himself."

"River of God is not like the text I remember from my Introduction to Missions class in college. This one is interesting. Inspiring, even. Here personal tales told by seasoned missionaries are juxtaposed with the solid research of expert missiologists. They are convinced that the Scriptures focus on the mission of God--and so should we. River of God makes the case that even now the kingdom can come and God's will can be done."
Emmanuel Christian Seminary
"River of God flows with 'kingdom missiology.' God is shown as a 'missionary God' who has compassion upon the world. Incarnational living is the key component expressed, demonstrating a false dichotomy between social activism and evangelism . . . River of God will inform, challenge and give direction to those concerned about missionary endeavor. I highly recommend the people and the content of this well-organized and well-crafted book."

"[This] is not dry, academic writing, but filled with gripping, real-world examples from practitioners. It covers the current world of Christian missions from biblical, historical, theological, practical, demographical, strategic, and technological perspectives. Be prepared for discussions of things like 'incarnational missions,' 'from everywhere to everywhere,' 'amateurization of missions,' and 'kingdom missiology' as you enjoy this book."
