In "Our Changing World and the Great Commission," Carl Teichrib challenges our assumptions about missions. The focus is often on foreign missions, but he emphasizes that all Christian believers are missionaries; the field is in our backyard, our communities, and our families. A missionary is most simply a truth-teller proclaiming the truth about God's character, human nature and Christ's finished work on the cross. The current mission field is made up of three main groups of people - non-religious unbelievers, religious non-Christians, and the Christian struggling with unbelief and attempting to incorporate other spirituality into Christianity. Truth remains the truth, and we are commissioned to deliver that message to those around us.
