Description

A Vision for Missions

Tom Wells writes with the conviction that Christians interested in missions must return to our first principles: that human need and terrible world conditions are not really our chief Biblical motive. The motive is, the glory of God! HE – our God – is worthy to be known, and it is a disgrace that so many, among the nations, do not know or serve Him. The missionary vision must begin with a desire for Christ to be known.

It’s a challenging, relevant book to every believer — whether you plan to work on the missions field or to be a faithful witness where you now live. And a book that contains much valuable biographical information about David Brainerd and William Carey as well – men who lived by these principles.
