Acknowledgments are written by M. Thomas Starkes, Professor of Christian Missions & World Religions. It begins with an "Introduction" & includes 8 chapters, notes, bibliography, & index & maps. This book is a fresh interpretation of the history of Christian missions. Beginning with a summary of the biblical basis of missions, the author uses a chronological framework for his material. This volume, however, is not a catalog of dates, places, & events. Rather, in a readable & practical manne r, attention is given to sociopolitical conditions, biographical information about lesser-known persons in missions, significant contemporary movements, & a discussion of the future of 1980's Christians face the beginning of a new age & must find wa ys to meet the challenges of this time. Students & lay-persons will be excited by the work of God's commissioned people; they might also discover that the author's commitment to missions is contagious.
