"Urbana's impact runs deep in many kingdom-bringing movements and communities around the world, including Wycliffe Bible Translators. I applaud the leadership of Urbana in finding effective ways to empower and equip each generation to fulfill their unique role in reaching the least, the last and the lost. The Urbana Onward series is a practical and inspirational resource for those seeking to live a life of global impact for the glory of God."

Bob Creson, president, Wycliffe Bible Translators USA

"Urbana Onward is an excellent resource for those who desire to pursue God's call to mission. Each author creates a unique blend of story and observation to emphasize the essentials--God's call, our response and the centrality of justice--in appropriating a missional life."

Stephan Bauman, president and CEO, World Relief

"Urbana Onward gives us the right books at the right time: practical, readable, thoughtful, hopeful insights for the next generation of missional Christians."

Don Everts, author of Jesus with Dirty Feet and Go and Do: Becoming a Missional Christian

"The plethora of global involvement opportunities today are sometimes overshadowed by the magnitude of need and the uncertainty of where to dive in. We need practical steps to help us get started and keep going. This series covers personal issues (understanding God's call), spiritual foundations (spiritual warfare, worship) and implementable tools (partnership, justice) that serve as catalysts to help every reader take the next step toward effective engagement in the work of Christ's kingdom."

Paul Borthwick, author of Western Christians in Global Mission and How to Be a World-Class Christian
