2. Out of the Comfort Zone
by George Verwer

George Verwer, the founder and current international director of Operation Mobilization (OM), writes this book after 40 years of trying and motivating kingdom work. Having worked with so many people (over 100,000 people have been through OM since the late '50s) from all over the world (over 60 nationalities represented within OM), his insight and knowledge into world missions are practically unmatched today. The cornerstone of this book is the need for a more 'grace awakened' and balanced approach to world missions. Mr. Verwer clearly spells out simplistic and encouraging solutions to many of the key issues facing the church today, such as tensions between being and doing, leadership, using only nationals as missionaries, and many more.

3. Passion for the Heart of God
by John W. Zumwalt

From the book's dust jacket: "There is nothing worse than a stagnant relationship with Jesus. This book is a jumpstart to renewed passion for Jesus and a road map for seeing Him walk out His life through us! You will never be the same!"

I couldn't put this book down when I started reading it. It was easy to read and reproducible. John showed the simplicity of the message of the Bible in proving all the more that it is God's design to redeem all men back to Himself. God didn't just love Israel in the Old Testament, but chose them to be His ambassadors to make His name known among all peoples, just like He has chosen us as Gentiles and given us the commission to extend Christ's Kingdom to the far corners of the earth. I will never read my Bible the same again.

4. Too Valuable to Lose: Exploring the Causes and Cures of Missionary Attrition
by William D. Taylor

This book is a tremendous instrument for missions agencies, churches, and missionaries. It is the result of studies on missionary attrition, its causes, and its cures. I highly recommend it.
