Item Description...
Overview
As the first volume of the Encountering Mission series, this book provides a broad overview of world missions. The book is divided into five major sections. The first two provide the biblical and theological basis for missions as well as a historical survey. The following three sections consider the practical issues and contemporary challenges involved in mission work. The authors incorporate a number of features that add focus and insight to their broader survey. Chapters close with a case study to focus on important issues and concerns. There are also numerous sidebars, maps, and charts throughout the text that provide further details on particular subjects and raise questions for discussion. A teacher's manual (available on CD-ROM) includes additional case studies, historical documents, and PowerPoint slides for classroom presentation. As a bonus, a free CD-ROM containing the Evangelical Dictionary of World Missions is included in the back of each book. This comprehensive reference work contains over 1,400 articles on the theory, practice, theology, and history of mission. A. Scott Moreau is professor of missions and intercultural studies at Wheaton College Graduate School in Wheaton, Illinois. He is the general editor of the Evangelical Dictionary of World Missions.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good textbook  Mar 12, 2007
Recently I used "Introducing World Missions" for the textbook in the world missions course I taught at William Jewell College. My students seemed as pleased with this book as I was. Technical words are clearly defined and the many sidebars and case studies attractively augment the more academic concerns of the book. While the authors are clearly within the evangelical wing of Christianity, they present a balanced account of world missions from the biblical, historical, and practical viewpoints. While I granted this book only four stars in rating it, I don't know of a five star world missions textbook for college students. I recommend the book to anyone looking for a good text for a world missions class--in a college or in a church setting--or for anyone who is interested in reading a good summary of contemporary missiology packaged in an attractive, easy to grasp manner.
 
Missions Source  Mar 13, 2006
This is an excellent text/source for World Missions. I teach World Missions at a Bible School, and this is the second year we've used this text. The CD Rom is also very resourceful. Highly recommended!!!
 
Excellent introduction  Nov 15, 2005
This little (350-page) book is a great textbook introduction to missions. It includes 5 sections: encountering missions in the (1) scriptures, (2) history, (3) as a candidate, (4) as a sent one or sender, and (5) in the contemporary world. It includes definitions, grapples with the various mission issues today, and includes some great case studies on things missionaries have to grapple with (e.g. issues an agency faces when its workers have been kidnapped). Anyone considering becoming a candidate for long-term missions should grab a copy of this.
