Tuning God's New Instruments Part 1/3

A guide to starting a missions agency. Mission runs like a thread through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Without mission we would probably have no Bible. The Gospels were written to instruct new Christians in the life of Jesus Christ, at a time when the first generation of Christians were disappearing from the earth. The one book of church history in the Bible was planned to tell the story of the extension of the gospel through the Roman world. At the same time it presented an appeal to Rome, showing the favour with which the authorities first regarded Christianity. The epistles came from missionaries writing to churches brought into being through missions.

Working Your Way to the Nations

Tentmaking is a subject of strategic importance to world evangelisation. The concept is biblical, historical precedents abound, and today’s missionary context demands it. This book will fill a gap in the area since it provides a set of essays on effective tentmaking by experienced and knowledgeable missions specialists from around the world. Its concerns are practical but what makes this book doubly useful is the fact that it is designed as a study text either for individual or group use. Anyone contemplating the tentmaking role would be well advised to check out this book. Edited by Jonathan Lewis, Wm Carey Library, 1993, 193pp
