Roger S. Greenway helps his readers understand missions and challenges them to apply Christ’s missionary command to themselves and their churches. He challenges modern missions and provides the proper perspective and motives appropriate to a missionary. He then explains the biblical foundation for missions, analyzing missions work in both the Old and New Testament and the corresponding theological issues raised. He finishes the book by addressing various issues missionaries face, ranging from financial support to training local leadership, and ethical dilemmas to basic preparations for becoming a missionary.

Endorsement

"When it comes to the Christian mission, very often laypersons and students are forced to choose between books that are technical and abstruse, on the one hand, or oversimplified and imbalanced, on the other: No more! God and Make Disciples! is at once biblical, thorough, and readable." — David J. Hesselgrave, Professor Emeritus of Mission, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
