    1. Definitely worth reading As the title indicates, Goheen of Dutch Reformed extraction introduces Christian mission by looking at the teaching of Scripture, the lessons of history, and the pressing issues of the present Basically, he argues on the basis of Scripture that God s mission is comprehensive that he works to restore the whole world Here he picks up Bavinck s notion of grace restoring nature He then argues that the gospel announces God s reign and the reconciliation of the world through C [...]


    2. An excellent and lengthy read on the importance of Christian mission This book traces the roots of Christian mission throughout Scripture, History, and the issues that have developed in the study of Christian missions I think it is an exhaustive introduction of world missions and the spread of the Gospel.


    3. This book is a decent introduction to some of the main topics in Christians missions Goheen gives a good historic overview of missiology and its development and shares some interesting insights about missions in his final chapter.


    4. This book was a fine work that served to bring together both the practical side of missions, mission, and biblology, but it had its downfalls in a number of ways 1 It was incredibly boring at times, making a 35 page chapter almost unbearable at times.2 He seems to be at least Reformed leaning in his theological understanding of the cosmos, and Christ, which may not be a negative to you, but it is to me.3 He had a tendency to hate on the Western academic system without ever really explaining why [...]


    5. Great introduction to the current state and the issues involved in Christian missions It does get a bit long near the end, probably helpful as a reference work than as a book to be read straight through.
