"Discovering the Mission of God is an exciting compilation of writing and reflections by contemporary actors who are involved in the divine activity that is moving toward that elusive objective when all peoples have the opportunity to hear, understand and respond to the gospel in their own cultural context. . . . [It] will challenge the church and motivate God's people to adjust priorities and personal agenda to become aligned with what God is doing to fulfill his mission today." â€”From the preface by Jerry Rankin, president emeritus, International Mission Board
"Mike Barnett has pulled together a stellar group of Baptist and other Christian contributors to explore the mission of God as it has unfolded in the Scriptures, in history and throughout the world today. These compelling essays will offer solid guidance to a new generation of Great Commission Christians from many Protestant denominations." â€”Todd Johnson, associate professor of global Christianity, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Discovering the Mission of God is not simply a book you will read but a comprehensive and scholarly resource you will reference repeatedly. The depth and breadth of content is amazing.
