Brethren Missionary Herald Company is making a special offer to Grace Brethren churches and their missions committees who choose to use Tom Julien’s new book, Antioch Revisited, as a study and resource guide for missions committees and mission strategy planners.
The book, which presents the fictional but true-to-life story of “John,” a missionary who comes to a ministry-changing conclusion, is written in two parts. The first fictional section lays out a number of truths in an easy-to-read fashion.
The second part is a manual which committees and missions personnel can work through to discuss, explore, and implement the truths laid out in the first part.
Dave Guiles, executive director of Grace Brethren International Missions (GBIM), says, “Tom Julien has mentored a generation of pastors and missionaries in the critical importance of reuniting the church with her mission . . . his insights will impact many.
GBIM’s Jay Bell, in urging churches to adopt and use the material, says, “Antioch Revisited is going to help churches think through their identity and their approach to the Great Commission, both locally and globally. The book flows well and puts its ideas across with a soft touch. But the truth is hard-hitting! One of the strengths of the book is that it can be read in short order. That is a huge plus in our culture of over-extension.”
The book normally retails for $9.99 per copy, but the special Grace Brethren church price until December 31 is $5 each (plus shipping and handling) in quantities of five or more.
The book’s ISBN number is 088469-306-6. To order, log onto www.bmhbooks.com or call (toll-free) 1-800-348-2756. Offer expires December 31, 2006.
