Glover ShippLeave a Comment

In this book brother Shipp does a superb job of tracing the theme of missions from Genesis to Jeremiah.  He takes the great characters of the Old Testament, and the powerful stories that are woven around them, to show how God worked in their lives and of the purposes that He had for them.  From those indepth studies, he draws lessons for our times to inform, encourage and to prepare us to go on to greater things for the Lord’s church and for His cause.  This is a book for every member of the family and one that hopefully will be widely read.  Its message is eternal ,and the purpose of it is to edify and to encourage the reader to dedicate his life to God.  Surely it will lead many to a stronger faith and a more fruitful life for the Lord.

Not a single congregation will rise above the plans — or absence of plans — of its eldership! Until churches of Christ plan to evangelize, to start new congregations at home and abroad, very little will be done toward these ends.

In Volume 1 brother Shipp expressed amazement at the missionary thread throughout the Old Testament as well as in the New Testament. This continues that study, covering the material from Jeremiah to the beginning of the Lord’s church in Acts 2.
