Missionary God Missionary Bible (book review)

Technically speaking, Missionary God, Missionary Bible by Dick Brogden is a pre-book. It is being released through 2019 as a daily email and then it will be published as a book next year. But I urge you to jump in on these stirring thoughts today! 

God is a missions-minded God, so it makes sense that the Bible would be a missions-centered text, speaking to the hearts of both those who don’t know Jesus as Savior yet, and to the hearts of those Christians who should be missional in their lives. 

Dick is a veteran missionary, and he brings his decades of ministry experience to this monumental work. Dick is using The Chronological Study Bible to take us through the Bible in one year and to look at every text through a missionary lens. The Chronological Study Bible is a fascinating read in itself, as it places the biblical texts in the order in which the events happened, but then when Dick’s insights are added to those historical events, something even more powerful stirs in my heart. 

Each day’s devotional also includes a prayer focus for an unreached people group, along with the vital statistics about these precious people who need to hear the Good News of Jesus. 

This study Bible, read alongside Dick’s missional insights, and then combined with a prayer for a group that needs to receive the Gospel, makes for a life-changing devotional time. You will definitely want to get the book when it is published, but please don’t wait until then to begin to have your missionary heart enlarged and engaged in this fantastic daily study.

The Only Thing Missing

Last night we kicked off our week of pray by focusing our prayers on missionaries. We had a special missionary guest with us, and I was moved by his prayer. In essence he prayed —

With all of the millions and millions of Christians in our churches, and with all of the millions and millions of dollars in resources we have, the only that is keeping us from reaching the 6900 unreached people groups is a “Yes.”

Wow!

I pray more people will say…

  • Yes, I will pray for missionaries.
  • Yes, I will give to missions.
  • Yes, I will go.

The only thing missing is a “Yes.” Can you be a part of “Yes”?
