Publisher's Summary

What will it take to accomplish Christ’s mission in our lifetime?

That’s the question evangelicals have been asking for over a century, but our efforts to reach the unreached and finish the task have often sacrificed the important for the immediate. The greatest challenge in evangelical missions isn’t a lack of urgency, but a lack of discernment. As we’ve prioritized movements that are simple and reproducible, the gospel and faithful churches are now threatened. Our mission itself could be disqualified.

In Mission Affirmed, Elliot Clark seeks to reshape our motivation by considering the example of Paul the missionary. The desire for God’s approval is what formed his ambition and directed his methods, and it should guide ours too. In these chapters, we rediscover how pursuing God’s praise can both motivate and regulate our gospel ministries. We also refocus — as missionaries, pastors, churches, and individuals — on what matters more than a mission accomplished: a mission God affirms.
