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.

… thought–provoking … helps release the missionary from this self–focused introspection and find hope, assurance, and endurance in the all–sufficient power of Christ and His Word. The result is a Gospel–driven approach to mission that is theologically rich, Spirit–empowered, and biblically informed.

James A. Blumenstock, Dean & Associate Professor of Philosophical Theology, Asia Biblical Theological Seminary, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Don’t let the word ‘theologian’ in the title fool you. There’s nothing ‘ivory tower’ about this book. To the contrary, Burns articulately argues that missionaries should, indeed, be out and about and engaged in God’s global mission. He does so with rich and insightful doses of Scripture, history, theology, and missiology, as well as illuminating examples from his own life and others’. As both a missionary and a theologian, Burns has written with aplomb and authority; as an impassioned follower of Christ, he’s written with humility and hope.
