Overview

A Festschrift in honour of Don Carson's 70th birthday. One of Don's greatest gifts has been his focus on mission. This collection edited by Richard Cunningham features some of the leading theologians writing at their best about mission and the challenges facing the church.

Serving the Church, Reaching the World is a collection of powerful and timely essays that will inspire and resource church leaders and all thinking Christians to attempt this vital task. Timothy Keller, Jim Packer, John Piper, and Mike Ovey are among the contributors to this volume, which has been published in appreciation for the life, work, and ministry of Don Carson.

Richard Cunningham has gathered a select group of theologians, friends, and colleagues to produce a book that covers a wide range of stimulating and challenging topics, such as the priority of truth, the importance of winning hearts and minds for the gospel in a secular age, and the centrality of Christians working together in evangelism and truth without compromise.
