Books

Andrew Scott

Scatter

In Scatter – Go Therefore and Take Your Job with You, missions innovator Andrew Scott sounds a call for a new era of missions, one that uses the global marketplace for gospel growth and sees every Christian—engineer, baker, pastor, or other—as God’s global image bearer.

Andrew Knight

WTTW

Window to the World (WTTW) is a short book of numbers, stats, and commentary illustrating the overwhelming need in our world. It compiles the top 100 world mission stats that should shake every Christian’s world and groups them into 10 categories to help broaden their understanding.

Matthew Newkirk

Fill the Earth

Why does the church engage in missions? Where in the Bible do we find support for this work? These questions have been asked and answered by many throughout the centuries, though rarely does the investigation span across the entire canon of Scripture.

David Platt

Radical

It's easy for North American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel.

Christopher J.H. Wright

The Mission of God's People

Chris Wright's pioneering 2006 book, The Mission of God, revealed that the typical Christian understanding of "missions" encompasses only a small part of God's overarching mission for the world. God is relentlessly reclaiming the whole of creation for himself, and each of us fit into that big-picture plan.

George Milley

Loving the Church, Blessing the Nations

Most Christians will not leave home and go someplace else to minister. If they are to participate in God's global mission, they must be affirmed, developed and released right where they live, in the context of their local church.  This book shows how churches can become centers of mission vision and implementation and so accomplish God's design for the local church.

Dick Brogden

Missionary God, Missionary Bible

In this one-year devotional based on a chronological reading of the Bible, author Dick Brogden builds the case and the message is reinforced: He who is holy delights to be our God. We are to be His holy people that He might dwell among us. His glorious presence will wholly bless us in order that all nations, every distinct people group, might be likewise blessed.

Matthew Burden

Missionary Motivations

Beginning as an obscure sect in a backwater province of the Roman Empire, the Christian faith radiated out in all directions. What drove this expansion? Where some might think the motivations would be the Great Commission or expressions of concern for non-Christians, which are common today, the early church's mission was profoundly Christocentric. The focus was exalting the reign of Christ and the pursuit of holiness. Just as the prophets had foretold, the Messianic king had come, and now, reigning at the Father's right hand, he was drawing all nations to himself.

Why are the red zones red? Why are millions of people unreached by the gospel? In this episode of Neighbourhoods & Nations, we explain why Christianity has spread the way it has across the world and why there are still areas completely unreached by the gospel.

A true story examination of how God brings powerful transformation through people living in the middle of intense persecution for their faith. This riveting 90 minute docudrama follows the lives of people whose faith is tested beyond all reasonable limits, and uncovers the incredible ability of God’s grace to shine through and bring glory to God.

Radical serves the church by equipping Christians to follow Jesus and to make him known in their neighbourhoods and among all nations. In places where the gospel is already accessible, we work to awaken and mobilize the church. In areas where access is limited, we work to advance the gospel and see churches planted.
