Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


Almost every Christian and pastor knows the phrase, the Great Commission, but carrying out the Great Commission is more than just understanding what it is. It must be applied to local contexts practically and with urgency. 

Mobilizing a Great Commission Church for Harvest addresses practical aspects of evangelism in the local church, with the voices and views of nineteen current Southern Baptist professors of evangelism.” (Back Cover, italics in original)

These professors remind us that the Great Commission is for every follower of Christ. Jesus’s plan for the nations is that His disciples (i.e, Christians) would make more disciples by communicating His gospel and His teachings. The church today exists because Christians for 2,000 years have continued to carry out this commission. 

Discipleship happens within the context of the local church and often, a church’s heart for the Great Commission is a direct reflection of the pastor’s heart for making disciples. In all of this, Christians must remember that the Holy Spirit is with the church today and helps equip Christians to share their faith. He is the One working through the gospel message to bring sinners from death to life.
