Discover the theology that underlies mission and connects you to this vital activity of proclaiming the Gospel.
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” Luke 10:2 (ESV®) Whether you go on mission trips or support them through prayer or funds, this book offers a great understanding of your involvement in the mission field. Discover the theology that underlies mission and connects you to this vital activity of proclaiming the Gospel.

The mission field is all around you—down the street and across the world. We are called to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19 ESV®) and to not be ashamed of the Gospel (Romans 1:16 ESV®), so how do you live that out? This books covers important topics such as cultural anthropology, communication styles, linguistics, ecumenical issues, strategies and more.

Mission from the Cross is a valuable resource as it helps you understand how God blesses His children through your service in His kingdom. This resource explores the Lutheran theology of mission through a contemporary lens and focuses on how it is accomplished through God’s grace.
