On Mission is a new book with the stories of twelve Canadian Alliance international workers. This book celebrates the redeeming work of God and at the same time provides some accountability to the people of God who faithfully provided sons and daughters, finances and prayer, for the mission of God.
This book describes how missionaries in obedience to God’s call engaged in His redeeming activities all over the world by going to some of the toughest and most difficult places. They persevered, some under horrible conditions, having survived traumatic events, in order to see communities of faith established amongst least-reached peoples. Today, we rejoice, that in many nations of the world there are vibrant congregations, some small, some large that are living out the gospel in their communities.
This book tells how there is a plethora of systems, policies, structures, and people in place who provide care, guidance, prayer and sustaining strength for those on the frontlines. This includes firstly the lengthy process of identifying and developing healthy workers and then, secondly, the maintaining and providing adequate care of workers while on assignment. They are not left alone.
On Mission: Why we Go is an extremely timely compilation that is both rigorous in thought and accessible in format as it speaks to and wrestles with the importance of a robust theology of mission. Not only is this recommended reading, but perhaps also urgent and required reading for every follower of Christ.
… this very concept of “going on mission” can quickly evoke a variety of competing thoughts and emotions and is exactly why this work is perhaps more important than ever. Knowing clearly why we go, how we go, and what issues must be considered as one goes is absolutely crucial in the life of every Christ-follower and their obedience to both His example and command.
I am thrilled to commend this work to you. It is both timely and relevant and does not shy away from challenges before us.
