Mission Matters: Love Says Go

Tim Chester

Mission Matters: Love Says Go

Tim Chester

$14.99

Paperback

The Father delights in his Son.

This is the starting point of mission, its very core.

The word 'mission' means 'sending'. But for many centuries this was only used to describe what God did, sending his Son and his Spirit into the world.

World mission exists because the Father wants people to delight in his Son, and the Son wants people to delight in the Father.

Tim Chester introduces us to a cascade of love: love flowing from the Father to the Son through the Spirit. And that love overflows and, through us, keeps on flowing to our Christian community and beyond, to a needy world.

Mission matters. This book is for ordinary individuals willing to step out and be part of the most amazing, exciting venture in the history of the world.

Commendations:

'If you want to fire up your church with a vision for global mission, this is your book! ... It should carry a spiritual health warning.' - David Coffey OBE, Global Ambassador for BMS World Mission

'For years, I have been looking for a short, approachable book which would give a thorough introduction to the biblical, theological and practical aspects of mission, something to help people understand why we do mission and what some of the key issues are. I've just found that book and will be recommending it very widely indeed!' - Eddie Arthur, mission blogger and Director for Strategic Initiatives for Global Connections; Former Executive Director of Wycliffe Bible Translators

'Many are telling us that the day of global mission is over: the needs 'at home' are so overwhelming, and the dangers so great, that God cannot want us 'to go' as he did in the past. But God does care, and he still wants us to care with his compassion for a world of need. I am sure this book will provoke many people to respond to the challenge, as they realize that there are still thousands waiting to be introduced to the Saviour who alone saves and cares.' - Dr Helen Roseveare, missionary, speaker and author

'Easy to read, clear, practical and challenging, this excellent book explores the great story of the mission of the Trinity in Scripture and gives a thrilling account of how it has been weaved into the story of the Keswick Convention.' - John Risbridger, Chair Keswick Ministries, Minister and Team Leader Above Bar Church, Southampton

Must-read on missions
5 stars By Hoa, Sep 04 2017
In this short book, Chester opens up the Bible's teaching on missions. From its origin in the Trinity, through to the Old and New Testaments, and finally ending with practical suggestions on how churches can support missionaries. This book is short, easy to read, yet profoundly biblical and practical. A must-read for every Christian.
