The Missionary Call ~ M. David Sills

This is a great book for anyone that is thinking about or wants to research the mission field and if you feel God is calling you.  This book covers everything and is not a fast read, you need to take your time and really meditate on the context in this book.  It covers the good and bad of going into the mission field.  It gets deep into all the issues you can face of going to another country and how it is not an easy task to take on if God has not called you. This is great research book for anyone thinking about mission work, either out of the country or in your own back yard.... This book does not sugar coat anything, it is real and makes you think.  So much information in one book.

I was very impressed with this book and anyone that is thinking or going into mission work, read this book.  Beware, this book is not one you can just pick up and read cover to cover.  It will take time and thoughts to get through this book and then you will still need to re-read.   I would definitely recommend this to all churches and any age groups.  Sills put alot of research and thoughts into this book, I felt he didn't leave a stone unturned in the what he wrote.  This book was way more than I was expecting and very enjoyable.
