Many thanks to Pastor Rob Campbell for this kind endorsement:

As a pastor I am so grateful for a series like Gospel Meditations that lifts our eyes to see Christ! On different special occasions at church we have given out the men’s, women’s, and missions devotionals as gifts to every family. Gospel Meditations have helped us as a church to gradually grow Gospel thinking into our daily lives. Bethel is growing in grace and God has used Gospel Meditations in our journey.”

(Rob Campbell is the Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Sellersville, PA)

4000 Gospel Meditations for Missions

In the last two months ChurchWorksMedia.com has received orders for over 4000 copies of our latest devotional book, Gospel Meditations for Missions. We’re especially excited to see churches, schools, and missionaries using it as an affordable and challenging resource for missions conferences. Who knows what fruit will result from Christians studying the Bible with an eye toward world evangelization?! I encourage you to put a copy of the book into the hands of every member of your church. And as you distribute and read it, pray for laborers!

You can read more about it here and order it here. Grace!

THABITI ANYABWILE (Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman, keynote speaker at Together for the Gospel, and author of The Decline of African American Theology and other books)

“Can we do missions without meditating on the gospel?  Of course not.  And yet, how many well-meaning, mission-minded saints go off into the harvest having failed to prepare their own hearts with due consideration of the Good News?  Too many I fear. Gospel Meditations for Missions helps us slow down to consider what is of first importance that we might hold this treasure more fully in our clay hearts.  I joyfully commend it.”

DAVID J. HESSELGRAVE (Professor Emeritus of Mission at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and author of Planting Churches Cross-Culturally and other books on missiology)

“Some authors misconstrue what the Christian mission really is. Not Anderson, Crowley, Hosaflook, Keese, and Tyrpak, however. They define, defend and describebiblical mission in ways as arresting and unique as their names. And in so doing they deepen both our understanding of what God is doing in the world and our desire to join Him in the doing of it! This book is something. Buy it; read it; pray it; and commend it to a friend.”

DAVID M. DORAN (Pastor of Inter-City Baptist Church in Allen Park, Michigan, President of Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary, and co-author of For the Sake of His Name)

“There is nothing happening in this world that is more important than the mission of Jesus Christ. Nothing. What Christ is doing through the Church to call out a people for His name’s sake is the centerpiece of God’s plan for this age and should be the focal point of every believer’s life. Gospel Meditations for Missions is a tremendous resource to challenge and strengthen us about our place in God’s global pursuit of His glory through the gospel of His Son. Take a month to feed your soul and fuel your heart by meditating on what Christ wants done and is doing among the nations!”

THABITI ANYABWILE (Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman, keynote speaker at Together for the Gospel, and author of The Decline of African American Theology and other books)

“Can we do missions without meditating on the gospel?  Of course not.  And yet, how many well-meaning, mission-minded saints go off into the harvest having failed to prepare their own hearts with due consideration of the Good News?  Too many I fear. Gospel Meditations for Missionshelps us slow down to consider what is of first importance that we might hold this treasure more fully in our clay hearts.  I joyfully commend it.”

MATTHEW C. HOSKINSON (Pastor of the First Baptist Church in New York City and author of Assurance of Salvation)

“By almost any standard—the intentionality of local churches to train, assess, and prepare prospective missionaries; the length of time it takes a missionary to raise support; the little sense of gospel partnership we have with the missionaries we do support—Western Christians don’t do missions very well. The reason we don’tdo missions well is that we have not thought about missions well. This book has our poor thinking about missions in its crosshairs.”

WILL GALKIN (Leader of Galkin Evangelistic Ministries, Staff Evangelist at Northland Camp and Conference Center, and Church Planter in Salt Lake City, Utah)

“The Christian’s love for the gospel must be rekindled by spending time meditating on the gospel. The writers of this little book are striving to live gospel-centered lives, and their insights will stir your affections as you read them.”

Ships in time for Christmas.

Hesselgrave on Gospel Meditations for Missions

David J. Hesselgrave, Emeritus Professor of Mission at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and one of the most influential missiologists of this generation, has written the following endorsement of Gospel Meditations for Missions, the new devotional from ChurchWorksMedia.com:

“Have you noticed?  Currently we Christians are blest with a variety of books highlighting the Christian mission—why Christ saves us from sin and then leaves us in a such a sinful world at such a stressful time. For that we should thank God and greatly rejoice—except for one thing.  Some authors misconstrue what the mission really is. Not Anderson, Crowley, Hosaflook, Keese, and Tyrpak, however.  They define, defend and describe biblical mission in ways as arresting and unique as their names.  And in so doing they deepen both our understanding of what God is doing in the world and our desire to join Him in the doing of it!  This book is something.  Buy it; read it; pray it; and commend it to a friend.”

We’re thankful for such a kind endorsement from such a respected source. You can pre-order Gospel Meditations for Missions here.

(By the way, this would make an affordable and edifying Christmas gift. Ask Dave!)
