Book Review - A Survey of World Missions

A Survey of World Missions

By: John Caldwell Thiessen

Book Reivew

I have been looking forward to reading this book for over ten years now. It is a unique read because it was written in 1961, and so you get a view of the world at that time. This is a textbook, scholarly work with the normal footnotes and endnotes. Where possible, the book gives some details on the pre-modern missions era, but its focus is mostly modern missions. For me, the main value of the book was the snapshot history, origins, and religious views of all the major areas of the globe. This will be a great reference book for many years to come even though it is an older work.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
