"Does a changing world necessitate a changed mission? No! Quite the opposite. It necessitates changes in missions but not a changed mission. Our changing world stands in desperate need of an unchanging missionâ€”changing missions but not changing mission! This book should be required reading for every short-term missionary and for every aspiring career missionary as well. It is also recommended reading for all who support them with money and prayer." â€”David J. Hesselgrave, emeritus professor of mission, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"In a world with numerous pressures shaping the church, David Sills has written an excellent work drawing our attention to some of them. Changing World, Unchanging Mission calls us to action as kingdom citizens, challenging us to be students of both God's Word and God's world! A must read for those desiring to reach the nations!" â€”J. D. Payne, pastor of church multiplication, The Church at Brook Hills, Birmingham, author of Pressure Points
