GEORGE W. PETERS (Th.B., B.A., Tabor College; B.D., St. Andrew's ^College; B.A., University of Saskatchewan; Ph.D., Hartford Seminary Foundation, ^Kennedy School of Missions) was professor of world missions at Dallas Theological ^Seminary for many years. Dr. Peters has been listed in Who's Who in American ^Education and has written several books including A Biblical Theology of ^Missions and Tony Evans Speaks out on Divorce and Remarriage.
A welcome addition to the bookshelves of missionary literature. ^Dr. Peters has done a remarkable job in dealing with the fundamental issues of missions ^today. It is truly a study book and should be studied thoroughly by all who ^have any interest in the field of missions.
A ^major work on missions from an evangelical viewpoint . . . a good job of setting ^forth the biblical teaching on missions and refuting modern liberal alternatives.
-The ^Banner of Truth
Throughout the book, certain emphases come through loud ^and clear: the theocentricity of the Christian missions, the importance of proclamation, ^the centrality of the local church and the lordship of Christ. A solid and ^significant contribution to the literature on missiology.
Probably ^no specifically missionary book has ever undertaken as profound and comprehensive ^a treatment of the subject as this one. The distinctiveness of the book is ^the way in which it unifies and integrates the whole range of theological themes ^in and around the idea of missions. There is here a view of missions that ^is authentically biblical and soundly theological, and in the inimitable style of ^Professor George W. Peters.
A thorough survey ^. . ."
This book is scholarly, spiritual ^and easy reading because of the warm missionary compassion that flows through its ^chapters.
George N. H. Peters (1825-1909), during a long life of increasingly debilitating sickness and near-blindness, produced the most exhaustive single work of pre-millennial thought ever published. Born in New Berlin, Pennsylvania, and after graduating from Wittenberg College, he pastored a number of Lutheran churches in Ohio.
