Exploring the Land: Discovering Ways for Unreached People to Follow Christ
Exploring the Land: Discovering Ways for Unreached People to Follow Christ by Shane Bennett,
Our eternal, compelling goal is to see all peoples worshiping Jesus. As missionaries take the gospel to all people, the questions that quickly rise to the top of their list almost exclusively have to do with themselves. But rather than beginning with issues specific to missionaries, we must begin with a focus on unreached people. We need to lift our eyes beyond ourselves and ask, "How will new believers in this people group worship?" "What will an inviting, relevant church look like?" Essentially, "How will these unreached people follow Christ?" Exploring the Land is designed to help you answer these important questions. Since 1988, numerous research teams have been sent to support ministries in North Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. The method followed by these teams is available to you in this easy-to-use manual. Exploring the Land is also used by churches, agencies, and universities throughout the world. It will equip you to understand complex urban situations, to discern unreached people groups, and to develop culturally relevant church-planting strategies.
