It is open in the sense that the gospel is proclaimed to all without any boundaries, but it is a secret in that "it is manifest only to the eyes of faith" (Location ).Cited by: If missions are from God, then these doctrines are from God,— for without them missions are impossible.

And so, missions become an argument for Christianity,— not only for Christianity in general, but for its particular doctrines of sin, and atonement, of probation limited to this life, and of condemnation for all who are out of Christ. This exhaustive theology of missions focuses on theory and biblical mandates for missions as a vital part of theology.

Peters, a foremost missions authority, considers both liberal and conservative views, although his own stance is solidly evangelical. Paper, pages. A Biblical Theology of Missions () by George PetersBrand: Moody Publishers.

One of the most moving books I have read about the history of modern missions is The St. Andrews Seven, by Stuart Piggin and John Roxborogh (Banner of Truth, ). It tells the story of how the life and teaching of Thomas Chalmers at the University of St.

Andrews inspired six of his best students in the 's to radical missionary commitment. All missions books point to one thing: the believer’s call to fulfill the Great Commission.

THEOLOGY OF MISSIONS Introduction In the first chapter of the book of Genesis, God created the heavens and the earth. He also created man in His own image. God and Man were in an active relationship, until the day of ‘the fall’ when Man ate the forbidden fruit, this was the first sin. Upon consumption of the fruit, Man was enlightened to good and evil.

Bosch: Publisher: Orbis Books, ISBN:Subjects5/5(1). G od is a missionary God. The Bible is a missionary book. If churches want to align themselves with the purposes of God and His Scriptures, they must strive not only to be on mission — which involves the worship of God, the gathering of saints, and evangelism — but also to be missionaries, which means intentionally and actively sending forth gospel heralds into places where Christ has.
