About the Author

George-W Peters
GEORGE W. PETERS (Th.B., B.A., Tabor College; B.D., St. Andrew's College; B.A., University of Saskatchewan; Ph.D., Hartford Seminary Foundation, Kennedy School of Missions) was professor of world missions at Dallas Theological Seminary for many years. Dr. Peters has been listed in Who's Who in American Education and has written several books including A Biblical Theology of Missions.


A welcome addition to the bookshelves of missionary literature.  Dr. Peters has done a remarkable job in dealing with the fundamental issues of missions today.  It is truly a study book and should be studied thoroughly by all who have any interest in the field of missions.
-Calvary Review

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.
-The Banner of Truth

Throughout the book, certain emphases come through loud and clear: the theocentricity of the Christian missions, the importance of proclamation, the centrality of the local church and the lordship of Christ.  A solid and significant contribution to the literature on missiology.

Probably no specifically missionary book has ever undertaken as profound and comprehensive a treatment of the subject as this one.  The distinctiveness of the book is the way in which it unifies and integrates the whole range of theological themes in and around the idea of missions.  There is here a view of missions that is authentically biblical and soundly theological, and in the inimitable style of Professor George W. Peters.
-Alliance Witness

A thorough survey . . ."
-Christianity Today

This book is scholarly, spiritual and easy reading because of the warm missionary compassion that flows through its chapters.
-Presbyterian Journal
