The Missionary Call explores the biblical, historical, and practical aspects of discerning and fulfilling God's call to serve as a missionary. Pointing the reader to Scripture, lessons from missionary heroes, and his own practical and academic experience, Dr. Sills guides the reader to discern the personal applications of the missionary call.

Grea book for anyone contemplating the mission field!
This is an excellent book for anyone who thinks they may be called to missions or simply desires to learn more about what it means to be called to missions. Sills never says that a call to missions looks like "x" nor does he say that a call has to be through a burning bush experience. Having served on the mission field and as he serves a proffessor of missions at a seminary, he really helps his reader understand and sift through all the emotions and questions involved. This is also a great book for family members of those who are called to international missions. It is not a complicated read and is very insigtful
