God has one unified, global purpose for all He does. This course introduces the exciting biblical, historical, cultural, and strategic dimensions of His plan. It addresses key issues: the basis of and necessity for world missions, and the status of and plan for world missions. Students are introduced to the basics they need to pursue missionary training or to help lead their local church in its global ministry.

The only thing that I did not like about the course was that it was developed in 1984, and the statics are 40 years behind. I would have wanted to have the present statistic available.George

I have really learnt a lot from this course. May God richly bless and replenish every virtue. Thanks! A great course by all standards.Stephen
Much of the course material is as relevant today as when the audio tapes were made some 30 years ago. With that said, some of the audio material is dated and does not correspond with the syllabus (ie reference to roman numerals). The data presented in the lectures has probably changed since the mid 1980s and needs updating. With that said, I did learn a lot about the biblical basis for world missions. For that reason, I would recommend this course, but qualify that recommendation about the age of the recordings. I recommend that the course syllabus include the date the recordings were made and revised.Scott
