God’s mission in creation and redemption is to bring men and women into the fellowship that the Father, Son, and Spirit have always shared. Come and See: A History and Theology of Mission is an invitation to understand that mission. Exploring how God’s nature informs mission and surveying the missional narrative of Scripture, Come and See lays a theological and biblical foundation for Christian mission, inviting you to savor and participate in the grand story of God’s mission that begins in Genesis and continues today.

Perfect for church-based training programs, Come and See will introduce readers to both the theology of mission and the history of God’s work through the church on mission. You and your church are welcomed to join the great mission story that God is telling!
