The Church Is Bigger Than You Think: The Unfinished Work of World Evangelism
author Patrick Johnstone
This is a tremendously encouraging book, because Johnstone clearly lays the responsibility for the unfinished work of world evangelism at the doorstep of the local church.
Johnstone, the Christian missions researcher behind the concept and early editions of Operation World, gives us plenty of things to rejoice about in the Lord. The church is growing and being effective in many places scattered around the world. The church is bigger and more influencial than the western church in many places.
Still, what God is doing through churches around the world gives us motivation to press on in the task of world evangelization. And, local churches are key to making that happen.
This is a book for local church leaders and mobilizers who want fuel to continue mobilizing toward completion of the Great Commission.
