Book Summary of A Biblical Theology of Missions by George W. Peters


God 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 either not been named or is “gospel-destitute” (p. 11). 

The way missionaries are sent may vary in the sense of mission organizations or churches partnering together, but the bottom line is that churches must see the whole of Scripture, meaning both the Old and New Testament, as revealing a God who is concerned for His glory in missions. The good news of the life, death, and resurrection of Christ for sinners ought to be published among the nations, and all persons are to be presented with the gospel and persuaded to repent of their sins and place their faith in the all sufficient work of Christ.
