God Shines Forth: How the Nature of God Shapes and Drives the Mission of the Church

Why Missions and Evangelism Are an Overflow of Delighting in God 

Evangelism and missions are parts of the Christian life often accompanied by fears, insecurities, and cultural pressures. In this addition to the Union series, Daniel Hames and Michael Reeves argue that an individual’s relationship with God influences their evangelism and missions more than anything else. Scripture clearly shows that a believer’s responsibility is to make God known in the world, but this cannot be done without first knowing and enjoying God.

To illustrate how knowledge of God influences evangelism and missions, Hames and Reeves address biblical themes such as the glory of God, Christ’s sacrifice, the fallenness of man, and the church’s future hope. There is hope for those who find these topics intimidating—when believers focus on the glory of the lamb of God, the gospel will shine through them. 

  • Ideal for Laypeople, Pastors, and Students: Specifically for those interested in theology and missions 
  • Union Series: The final book in the Union series which invites readers to experience deeper enjoyment of God 
  • Concise Version Also Available: What Fuels the Mission of the Church? by Daniel Hames and Michael Reeves 
  • Biblically Grounded: Teaches how biblical themes such as the glory of God, Christ’s sacrifice, the fallenness of man, and the church’s future hope inform evangelism and missions
