Gospel doctrine is the lifeblood of mission. Most missionaries in church history have, in preparation for the field, committed themselves to rigorous study and extraordinary theological training, but there has been a move away from that in recent times. E.D. Burns contends that this is dangerous, leaving those who need it most ill–equipped to deal with the difficulties mission life brings. This brotherly and friendly plea challenges those who are already in, or are considering joining, the mission field to rest in Christ’s work and abide in His Word.

… a no–nonsense, hard–hitting resource that refuses to reduce the missionary calling to anything less than a Christocentric, Word–driven, Spirit–led, church–affirmed, theologically equipped invitation to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the unreached peoples of the world. 

Billy Coppedge, Lausanne Movement Catalyst for Orality & Worker for Africa Gospel Church, Uganda (World Gospel Mission)

It is refreshing to once again have available for mission practitioners a strongly biblical approach to and subsequent evaluation of, the praxis of missions. Written by a perceptive ‘missionary–theologian,’ Burns guides missionaries how to be theologically adept as they perform their high calling as God’s global message bearers. I cannot recommend this book enough.
