Good Book
This book is a good counter to many of the things that we can think are the mission of the church. This book is not necessarily about missions in particular but the mission of the church as a whole. In looking at the mission of the church as making disciples of the nations, they also handle the question of what is the Christian's role in benevolence. If the mission of the church is disciple-making, then what does a Christian do about feeding the hungry and clothing the naked? They do not say that these things ought to be neglected, rather, they explain that they ought to be understood rightly. I recommend this book to anyone who has a heart for the lost and the hurting. It would do well to clarify how we understand the two.

Helpful, Biblical, balanced
This really helped me understand the current trendy christianese term "missional" in a Biblical way.

good, informative book
On a whole, this book gives a good overview and accurate critique of the mission of the church in response to the popular views of social justice.

Sometimes a bit tedious with references, but the authors do warn/inform the listener of their intention to be thorough.

All in all, very insightful and fair.

Convincing narration
'Narrator Adam Verner conveys passion for the subject of the church's mission ... and he seems to read with intent to convince listeners of the same.'
