This exhaustive theology of missions focuses on theory and biblical mandates for missions as a vital part of theology. Peters, a foremost missions authority, considers both liberal and conservative views, although his own stance is solidly evangelical. Biblical Theology of Missions looks at the foundational grounds of the missions enterprise, emphasizing the divine mandate, the importance of proclamation, and the centrality of the local church and the Lordship of Christ.
A major work on missions from an evangelical viewpoint. . . a good job of setting forth the biblical teaching on missions and refuting modern liberal alternatives.
