What does it mean to be a missionary in the world today. Dr. Griffiths challenges those who may have not seriously thought about missions before, confronting them with the prospects of a life spent in cross-cultural missionary service. He also helps those who are already missionary candidates to assess their inner thoughts wisely and to face their futures confidently yet realistically.
The purpose of this book is to motivate toward mmission in a persuasive and intelligent way through (1) giving a theological motivation rooted in the character of God; (2) indicating the necessary sacrifice involved, but also describing the cultural and spiritual enrichment arising from missionary service; and (3) carefully explaning the missionary call, showing young adults ways to achieve both inward and outward confirmation of their calling.
Michael Griffiths has served as General Director of the Overseas Missionary Fellowship, Principal of London Bible College.
