Go and Make Disciples! : An Introduction to Christian Missions. By (author) Roger Greenway.

This book is fine as a very big-picture, introductory text. The topics covered will provide opportunity for deeper thought about many issues related to Christian missions. I was disappointed in several chapters because of a lack of detail on some matters and often a lack of firm conclusions. Several chapters ended with me still unsure about what he wanted to see implemented in missionary endeavors. Still, some of the chapters are thought-provoking and the book is worth reading.

Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you. Look, I myself will be with you every day until the end of this present age. -Matthew 28:16-20 (CEB).

If you have ever had a try at treasure hunting before, you would have experienced the thrill and joy you had when you managed to find the ‘treasure’. This was my very experience when I first started to read this particular book. At the time of writing, this book had 2 review on the mighty Amazon reviews, and 8 ratings on Goodreads. Quite a small audience for a book that’s published 15 years ago! It turns out I’ve discovered a gem that’s probably too underrated. So do not be mistaken by them, maybe you should give this book a read and then give me your impression of it. Because this turned out to be a really good book to introduce christians to the mission work.

In this book, Roger Greenway first start by setting the context for the readers, first by showing how the world needs the gospel, next, he sets the definition for the word ‘missionary’, and lastly the motivation the church should have for mission.

Next, Greenway shows the readers from the bible the foundations and reality of mission within the word of God. He gives wide sketches of how missions is present both in the Old and New Testament. Following which, Greenway shows how especially in the New Testament the uniqueness of Jesus and how God’s people has always interacted with the other religions present in among them, thus presenting how christians ought to interact with them, and how to bring the uniqueness of Jesus to them.

In the last section, Greenway deals with the practical issues with regards to actual mission work. Greenway allows the readers to take a sneak peek into the lives of a missionary, the issues that one has to deal with when in the field. This is part of the reason why this book is so good, it’s able to present a comprehensive picture without tying the reader down with needless details.

What is great about this book is how insightful it has been, it was already talking about the need to go to in the cities 15 years ago! Comparatively, it was only 2-3 years ago where there was a sudden surge of book on the importance of going into the cities and doing the work of evangelism planting churches in them. Next, it also discusses about the ethics of evangelism, although the answer provided in this chapter was a little brief, it shown how far-sighted the author was.

In summary, if you’re interested to have a great introduction to missions, or wants your church to think in this direction, I would highly recommend this book to you. I’m sure this book will help you in thinking through the practical and theological issues related to world missions, and give you a firm foundation as you advance in other books that handles particular topics in greater detail.

GO and Make Disciples is a must read for any existing or potential missionary. The facts, figures and how-to sections were more than informative. This book provides not only the basics of missionology but leads you to the next steps for anyone feeling the call of God.
The Biblical basis of missions and why some people are called to be missionaries is at the very foundation of missionary service. This foundation shows what God has in store for the missionary as well as the people he will be serving. Throughout the pages, one will clearly see that foundation and why it is so important. The text also shows what to expect on the field by providing examples from such great missionaries as Jesus and the Apostle Paul. As the reader peruses the pages, not only does the Biblical basis for becoming a missionary become clear, but also the issues that one could possibly face on the mission field, including interaction with religions other than Christianity.
The Trinity of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit echo in each part of a missionary's mind, body and spirit throughout the entire book. Whether the reader is a potential candidate for mission work or a veteran missionary, this book will provide insight and practicality. Because it was so full of useful information and was the first book of this type that I have read, I felt I needed to read it a second time to make sure I did not miss anything important. I highly recommend this book to anyone considering mission work.

Gives some good guidance, just uses the wrong Bible. It would be better if the KJV was referenced instead of the NIV.
