10 Key Questions in Christian Missions Today
The fog of pluralism and tolerance has settled over the Great Commission, forming new clouds of doubt over age-old questions. Does a loving God really send sincere people to hell? Isnt there some good in all religions? Why must Jesus be the only way?
Veteran missiologist David Hesselgrave tackles ten pressing issues that missionaries and students of missions face today. Using Scripture, social sciences, and history, he provides solid and satisfying answers to tough questions and concludes that the future of Christian missions depends more on the changes we do not make than on the changes we do make.
"The book is timely, framing the biblical arguments in light of contemporary settings. It is also timeless because of the appeal to the revealed Scriptures as the only appropriate grounding for a discussion of the meaning and actions of missions."
