Books for people considering missions service
Missiology edited by John Mark Terry is a very packed book full of articles about missions. Not a first book for those wanting to serve, but a very good book for internediate research into missions.
Philip Jenkins' The Next Christendom gives a good overview of the current situation of Christianity in the world today. The faith is becoming less Western, for one thing and the majority of those that call themselves Christian in the world now are from Africa and Asia.
Thomas Hale's "On Being a Missionary" is a very good book for any wanting to go into missions.
John Piper's Let the Nations be Glad is a must read for all people considering missions.
More books will be added later.
