This book is about missions. It is not an exhaustive study, but a primer. As such, it is designed to introduce the student to the purpose and need of missionary activity in our day and to provide the teacher with a basic outline. In writing this book I have drawn from personal experience while serving in Jamaica and Germany and from insights shared by other missionaries and missionary leaders. The Recommended Reading list at the end of the book contains numerous biographical books by missionaries that will also give insights to missions.
