An exhilirating account of God's mission to man. Through history God has revealed himself to his people. In a world struggling under the extremes of wealth and poverty, oppression and gross abuse of power, God's people have slowly and often painfully learnt how to live in accordance with God's plan - that men should be reconciled to him, and hence to one another. In this lucid and highly readable presentation of God's progressive education of man from Genesis to Revelation, David Burnett shows how the Church should understand and spread the Word across cultures, in the face of conflict and to those of other faiths. Mission is a calling and a privilege which no Christian man can ignore.
