When discussing mission it is easy to rely on the New Testament and overlook the importance of the Old Testament. Walter Kaiser corrects this tendency by explaining the missionary message of the Old Testament. This edition adds two new chapters, freshens material throughout, expands the bibliography, and includes study questions. "Mission in the Old Testament challenges the axiom that the gospel mandate begins with the New Testament. Dr. Kaiser rightly begins with Genesis 1-11 as the opening drama of redemptive history that explains the subsequent developments in the story of salvation. The connecting point between the testaments is God's promise to Abraham to include all the clans of the earth in his blessing. The book offers great insights for all concerned with the direction of the church.
