Rediscovering the role God designed for the church in mission is a critical issue facing the missions movement today. That role is to glorify God by planting churches among every tongue, tribe, and nation. Planting churches amid unreached peoples is a complex process. It calls forth every ministry gift and the contribution of every believer. Imagine a businessman, a construction worker, a schoolteacher, and an engineer all working together to support the development of a local church amongst an unreached people group in another part of the world. Most Christians will not leave home and go elsewhere to minister. If they are to participate in God's global mission, they must be affirmed, developed and released right where they live, in the context of their local church. This book shows how churches can become centers of mission vision and implementation and so accomplish God's design for the local church.

The main topic of the book is that the Church is called to reach every nation. Miley cites numerous examples of this Biblical mandate (31-33) starting with Abraham (Gen ch 12) were God shows that through him He will bless all the nations. Miley is clear that it is the job of the Church to initiate Kingdom building; it is they who will complete the task of blessing the nations. (33) We see that this blessing must be accomplished systematically through encountering the' unreached peoples' who need to hear the gospel, and this not by addressing specific countries but people with similarities of background, or `people groups'. (36-37) At the time of printing Miley had the total number of worldwide people group's to be 17,081 (37) and the unreached people groups at 6,599. (49) Current statistics show the numbers to be 16,650 people groups, and unreached peoples at 7,183 totaling 43.1 % globally.
Miley demonstrates how the Church might play a fundamental role in equipping a new and more dynamic missionary endeavor, accomplished through establishing and cultivating an apostolic leadership base modeled on the Biblical example of the church at Antioch in Acts chapter 13. (ch 13) The author contends that these apostolic visionary leaders are still a viable aspect of God's gift to mankind. (Eph 4:11-13, pp 84, 92) Miley does not attempt to the answer the why, when and how (or even if) of modern-day apostles, rather he looks to the who, what and where of them, understanding that the Church today does not all recognize modern-day apostolic activity. (83) Focusing instead on recognizing the traits and usage of these, he sees them as a vital aspect of a more systemized approach to world missions. (135) We see that to succeed the churches must join forces, somehow, and focus on these unreached people groups. This will be accomplished through teams of missional people led by an apostolic leadership community who, chosen by God, will be the Vanguard of this new missionary format. (142) Miley feels that this task is outside of the scope of any single church, but it is "doable". (218)
As a classroom text Miley's work may be helpful to those working with their local congregation interested in the question of `what can we do to help'. Personally I am interested in the section, where through committed business participation, missions can be advanced by providing necessary resources to meet those needs, as this corresponds to the work we are doing at Teen Challenge. (ch 17 p 180) Miley seems to feel quite passionate about the apostolic leadership substructure that will advance the gospel in this modern revision of missiology. I feel the hard sell will be to the divergent mainline church bodies, as it would require some considerable interdenominational cooperation which, in my opinion, is very unlikely in the near future. This opinion mirrors one book review which asks of the book "how it [the books main thesis] may come to penetrate the heads and hearts of pastor's."
Dishadel
Miley's book is chock full of Biblical principles and lessons learned in his many years of overseas mission service. It consists of mostly short chapters with plenty of bulleted or numbered lists for easy reading. This is not a thorough theological treatment of missions but more of a guidebook and distillation of experiences. He makes a compelling case for ministry in teams, the need for business professionals and the whole breadth of gifts and talents in the body to be used in service, and for strategic focus on unreached people groups.

A great book that defines what a church, no matter what denomination, should be. Beautifully and clearly written. The kind of book where you read a chapter and then REALLY think about what you read.
