The author has an intense passion for directing people to God's call to missions, especially missions among those who have not heard the Gospel of Christ before. In the limited space in which he talks about this, I think he makes a good case.

However, the author spends much time indirectly attacking those who don't follow his narrow focus on one particular aspect of bringing Christ's Kingdom to Earth. He seems to see getting people to heaven when they die as being the purpose of Christianity, an
Very challenging book and a great compliment to our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. (Used along side the study guide for LifeWay's MasterWork curriculum).

Very good book on the need for world evangelism. It's always refreshing and inspiring to hear a person so passionate to reach the world for Jesus Christ. I especially liked his emphasis on prayer and the last chapter which lists possible reasons why people would not embrace becoming a missionary. McQuilkin has given me much to think and pray about.
