BOOK: The Message of Mission

From: MMN Resource List, March 24, 2004, Source

By Howard Peskett and Vinoth Ramachandra, The Message of Mission is one of The Bible Speaks Today series. Complete with a study guide, it covers 15 key passages of Scripture which teach about mission, literally from Genesis to Revelation.

In a unique East-West partnership, Peskett and Ramachandra explore the missional privilege and responsibility of the Church: to testify by its words and deeds to Jesus Christ, God’s unique Son – crucified, risen, and ascended.

This exposition observes mission from the underside, giving attention to the connections between mission and suffering, and even martyrdom, and to the historical importance of the Church’s conducting mission out of weakness.

By Rolland and Heidi Baker, Published by Fleming H. Revell Co., September 2003, 186 pages.

Always Enough: God’s Miraculous Provision Among The Poorest Children on Earth is a story that illustrates that even the most desperate poverty, the most devastating illness, and the most heart-wrenching grief are not beyond his help.

As you follow the adventures of missionaries Rolland and Heidi Baker in Mozambique – an African country ravaged by civil war and famine to become one of the poorest places on earth – you’ll be awed by God’s limitless power and tender provision. The account of how he has enabled the Bakers to help many hundreds of Mozambique’s throw-away children and start an astounding five thousand churches will warm your heart and move you to tears. The simple practice of “ministering to the one” and choosing to trust God daily unleashes great power to change any situation.

So come along on the journey! Witness what God is doing in one of the poorest nations on earth, and then invite him to work his miracles in your own life.
