BMH author Tom Julien has several positive exposures in the October, 2008, issue of EMQ (Evangelical Missions Quarterly) (pictured), one of the nation’s premier missions magazines which is published by the Evangelism and Missions Information Service (EMIS) of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College in Illinois.
Julien’s four-page article “Training Leaders by Planting Seed Truths” appears on pp. 508-511 of the magazine. It is based on his “Four Laws for Effective Communicators” pamphlet published by BMH Books.
In addition, a very positive review of Julien’s BMH book Antioch Revisited: Reuniting the Church With Her Mission appears on page 522 of the issue. The review is by D. Ray Davis of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Davis says, “Julien’s creation is brilliant–using a simple story to communicate how a missionary and a church came to understand the responsibility of both in obeying the Great Commission.”
He closed his review with the African proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.”
“Tom Julien,” Davis says, “illustrates Jesus’ intention that the responsibility of the Great Commission rests upon the Church.”
Tom Julien and his wife, Doris, served as missionaries in France for 28 years. Tom was executive director of Grace Brethren International Missions until 2000, and he is currently involved in leadership training. He serves, as well, on the pastoral staff of the Winona Lake(IN) Grace Brethren Church (Bruce Barlow, lead pastor).
