Not So Secret

Being contemporary agents for mission

by Graham Orr


Price: £8.99
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
Published:November 2012
I found this book to be really enjoyable, being a mix of testimonial stories of time spent in Tokyo, Japan as active missionaries and also a reflection on returning and working in the UK. As such it has a personal quality and genuineness about it that works well to demonstrate how we can be missionary agents in our own lives and communities. In each chapter not only is there this correlation between Japan and the UK but there is also a strong and considered Biblical outline, looking at what Jesus would have and indeed did do in such circumstances. This provides the scripture references and understanding that must be the basis of our actions when we go forth under the Great Commission. This is an excellent book for those that like testimonials, for those considering mission work, and not least for those that want to be active in evangelism.
