Addresses the issues of the lack of world evangelism that occurs very strongly. Highly suggest this book to someone wondering what they should do with their lives. Short and sweet book. :)

My dad gave me this book to read after I told him I felt God calling me into long-term missions work. This book answered questions I didn’t realize I had.

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.

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).
