OUTSIDE SOURCE Book Review: "A Vision For Missions," by Tom Wells

BOOK REVIEWED: "A Vision For Missions," by Tom Wells
REVIEWER: Ben Wright, at his paleoevangelical blog
THE REVIEW (his words, not mine):
"The Best Little Book You've Probably Never Heard Of --
Thanksgiving provided a little extra time for reading, and I finished A Vision for Missions, a Banner of Truth paperback by Tom Wells.What's so great about it? Well, a friend of mine, who's spent some time doing missions work in Central Asia, described it as a combination of Packer's Knowing God and Piper's Let the Nations Be Glad, both of which are just stellar books.So here's Wells' thesis: "God is worthy to be known and proclaimed for who He is, and that fact is an important part of the missionary motive and message" (9). And here's why that thesis needs to be advanced: "Our danger, it seems to me, lies in . . . forgetting God in our zeal for men" (110).But the kicker about Wells' book is that you can get it here for under $5, and it's only 157 pages long. If I recall correctly, that's about 25% of the price and 30% of the size of Packer and Piper's books. By all means, buy a few extra and give them away if you can afford it."
And here's a comment added to Ben's post by Greg: "Yes! My high school teacher gave me this book as a graduation present: definitely a great read. My fave chapter was the one probably entitled The Only Wise God. It's lucid, it reads easy, it's cheap - what more could you ask for?"
