"Some authors misconstrue what the Christian mission really is. Not Anderson, Crowley, Hosaflook, Keesee, and Tyrpak, however. They define, defend and describe biblical mission in ways as arresting and unique as their names. And in so doing they deepen both our understanding of what God is doing in the world and our desire to join Him in the doing of it! This book is something. Buy it; read it; pray it; and commend it to a friend."
—David J. Hesselgrave, professor emeritus of Mission at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and author of Planting Churches Cross-Culturally and other books on missiology
"There is nothing happening in this world that is more important than the mission of Jesus Christ. Nothing. What Christ is doing through the Church to call out a people for His name’s sake is the centerpiece of God’s plan for this age and should be the focal point of every believer’s life. Gospel Meditations for Missions is a tremendous resource to challenge and strengthen us about our place in God’s global pursuit of His glory through the gospel of His Son. Take a month to feed your soul and fuel your heart by meditating on what Christ wants done and is doing among the nations!"
—David M. Doran, pastor of Inter-City Baptist Church in Allen Park, Michigan, president of Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary, and co-author of For the Sake of His Name
"Can we do missions without meditating on the gospel? Of course not. And yet, how many well-meaning, mission-minded saints go off into the harvest having failed to prepare their own hearts with due consideration of the Good News? Too many I fear. Gospel Meditations for Missions helps us slow down to consider what is of first importance that we might hold this treasure more fully in our clay hearts. I joyfully commend it."
—Thabiti Anyabwile, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman, keynote speaker at Together for the Gospel, and author of The Decline of African American Theology and other books
"By almost any standard—the intentionality of local churches to train, assess, and prepare prospective missionaries; the length of time it takes a missionary to raise support; the little sense of gospel partnership we have with the missionaries we do support—Western Christians don’t do missions very well. The reason we don’t do missions well is that we have not thought about missions well. This book has our poor thinking about missions in its crosshairs."
—Matthew C. Hoskinson, pastor of the First Baptist Church in New York City and author of Assurance of Salvation
"The Christian’s love for the gospel must be rekindled by spending time meditating on the gospel. The writers of this little book are striving to live gospel-centered lives, and their insights will stir your affections as you read them."
—Will Galkin, leader of Galkin Evangelistic Ministries, and church planter in Salt Lake City, Utah
