Sent into the World, Sanctified by the Word
The Missionary–Theologian cuts like a surgeon’s scalpel,
graciously excising the disease and bringing wholeness to form a theology and philosophy of missions that is emphatically biblical. As a pastor in the local church, this work brings great hope to my soul for the future of missions and its enduring legacy, rooted in fidelity to sound doctrine. For too long, we in the West have minimized the heart of gospel ministry as being profoundly and primarily theological. Instead we have substituted biblical truth with the temporary, pseudo–spiritual remedies of man–centered experience and emotion.
