"Goheen argues compellingly that we have much to learn from the global church."--Nick Smith, Christian Renewal, July 29, 2015
"Michael Goheen's book will be added to my list of recommended books. Part one gives a biblical and theological reflection on mission. Part two hands the reader a historical and contemporary reflection on mission. These chapters are more than mere reflections; they also contain gospel-centered recommendations to move the worldwide church forward. . . . This book gives the church guidance and hope to continually be involved in God's mission."--Henry Bartsch, Haddington House Journal, 2015
"An excellent resource for mission agencies as a well-written introduction on the missional nature of the Church, with focused exploration of the developments that have contributed to transformed understandings of mission over the last century."--Allison Norton, Evangelical Missions Quarterly, July 2015
