Best Missionary Books
In the West, we have an overwhelming number of books on all kinds of topics; some of the big libraries in the world have millions and millions of books stacked in every corner of it. However, not all books contain knowledge that is consistent with the biblical worldview. This applies to Christian Missions and evangelism. Therefore, finding the right books to read is essential to all Christians, and especially for missionaries.
Self-reading is a crucial discipline for all Christians, those that want to grow in the knowledge of the Lord and how to defend His Gospel (1 Peter 3:15). We read in 2 Timothy 4:13 that Paul asked Timothy to bring “the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments.” We are not sure what books he was talking about, but we know that the “Parchments” refer to the Old Testament. Even the apostle Paul needed to read good books and the Bible to keep growing in His Christian walk.
Below is a list of best missionary books we believe to be essential for missionaries to read regarding Missions, evangelism, and the involvement of the local church in equipping and sending missionaries. All these books are theologically sound and in line with the vision and mission of Mission Quest.
