    1. M. David Sills has given us a timely and excellent book about the mission of the church. He examines many current practices in missions, mainly related to rapid advance that often leaves churches a mile wide and an inch deep. He examines the task of missions in Scripture and concludes that the missionary task is to reach and teach - making disciples and training church leaders. His book is thorough and excellent!Perhaps the most important chapter is the one on teaching and training in oral conte [...]

    2. If you are interested in the intersection between missions and theological education, then you must read this book. Sills clearly outlines the problems with speedy CPM and 2% and leave strategies. These come from a sincere desire to share the gospel globally but often leave believers unequipped and end in the spread of heretical teachings. He gives numerous examples and studies to support his claims.Sills responds that mission organizations need to emphasize theological education again. Furtherm [...]

    3. I felt like Sills painted with huge brush strokes and implicated many, many missionaries as being of the opinion that training and teaching are not important. While I certainly can lay no claim to knowing even a majority of missionaries from all the evangelical missions organizations around the world, in our own affinity within our own organization, there are not many who hold the views that Sills claims they do. OK, once I got past that, I agree with and appreciate Sills' main point ��there [...]

    4. Great book, and a must-read for anyone currently involved in missions, or considering international missions. Especially if you think that you or your organization have it all figured out, read this book! Written by a seminary professor who ALSO has decades of real-life missionary experience and an incredible heart for the Lord, every word said in this book will challenge you and help you reconsider what is really needed today in the task of global evangelism.

    5. Sills confronts the currently trending CPM methodology of many mission sending agencies with a call to slow down the task of Matthew 24:14 for the sake of not neglecting Matthew 28:18-20. A well written and thought provoking book for anyone involved in missions strategies or engagement.
