Pardon My Directness…

Recently, while talking with some people at a church in New Jersey, I was interested to know if they had ever read a book on missions. That includes biographies, history or just a general informational book about the work of missions. I was surprised to hear that these folks had yet to read ANYTHING about the work of missions! And they have been members of a church for over 20 years.

As Christians do we read about this subject? I would like to know what you, our reader and  blog enthusiast, have read about missions. Please take a few seconds and answer the question in our simple poll above. I would like to know what the average Church-goer has read in area of missions, missiology, or the work of missions.

I think the results might prompt a healthy self-examination of what we are thinking about a Christians today. After all, many of us would admit that we need to be aware of what God is doing around the world. And we would at least nod our heads to the value of the lessons learned through the lives of missionaries, both past and present. Let’s see what priority global outreach and spread of the Gospel has in our reading!

After this poll has been up a few weeks, I will post some books I have read and would suggest you read too!

Thanks for taking part.

About David Rogers, Magister en Artes

Este blog nace de una profunda gratitud al Autor de la vida, al eterno "YO Soy," quien me dio todo lo que tengo y lo que soy. Sin El, nada sería. Pero como no todos en el mundo han llegado a conocerle, también procuro dar una razón por la fe que tengo. Es una razón no basada en emociones ni en la intuición o el esperar algo mejor. Sino la razón está fundamenta en la verdad eterna, que no es incambiable y que es defensible, la verdad de Dios, el Creador y Sustentador de este mundo. ** Para los que se dedican a las credenciales, aquí están las de este autor, profesor, y misionero: 35 años viviendo en un país adoptivo, 39 años esposo de una misma dama, padre de 4 hijos destacados, abuelo de 4 tiernos nietos, amigo y compañero de colaboradores que han visto mis fallas y aun me llaman su amigo.
