The Father delights in his Son. This is the starting point of mission, its very core.

The word "mission" means "sending." But for many centuries this was only used to describe what God did, sending his Son and his Spirit into the world.

World mission exists because the Father wants people to delight in his Son, and the Son wants people to delight in the Father. Tim Chester introduces us to a cascade of love: love flowing from the Father to the Son through the Spirit. And that love overflows and, through us, keeps on flowing to our Christian community and beyond, to a needy world.

Mission matters. This book is for ordinary individuals willing to step out and be part of the most amazing, exciting venture in the history of the world.

"I am sure this book will provoke many to respond to the challenge as they realize that there are still thousands waiting to be introduced to the Saviour."

Helen Roseveare

"Easy to read, clear, practical and challenging."

John Risbridger

"If you want to fire up your church with a vision for global mission, this is your book! It should carry a spiritual health warning."
