Books new and old that have caught my eye.
Mission Handbook: 21st Edition
Published by the Evangelism and Missions Information Service of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College
Since it was first published in 1953, the Handbook has been providing leaders in the mission community with invaluable and comprehensive information on the who, what, where, and how of North American mission agencies.
This special 21st edition (2010) provides you with nearly 1,000 agencies working overseas. Each listing includes contact information, types of mission activity, areas of service, personnel statistics, and more. An in-depth analysis of North American missions gives you a synopsis of trends and comparisons in North American missions. 700+ pages. Only $59.95. Bulk discounts available.
I recently told you that Operation World is the most significant book about missions for the current generation. This book comes in a respectable second. Enough said.
