Over the centuries, Christians from all cultures and walks of life have responded with generosity to Jesus' command to make disciples of all nations. Here in The Scripture of Their Lives, readers will find vignettes of twenty-two Episcopal missionaries who have helped spread the gospel around the globe.
The story of each missionary illustrates one of the principles of emerging mission theology, as outlined by the Episcopal Church. Not only do they show the challenging and important work of mission, but they illustrate imperatives found in Holy Scripture. Each story is introduced with a familiar narrative passage from the Bible.
