M-Life Illustrated: Reflections on the Lives of Cross-Cultural Missionaries (Rainer Publishing, 2016)

The life a career missionary is the living out of a divine calling. Armstrong’s excellent work is simply a recounting of what missionary life might look like, built around solid mission training themes, illustrated by bits and pieces in one family’s journey. The missionary life is one every believer should live. M-Life is mostly about the life a full-time, vocational missionary, but people preparing for short-term service will also find it helpful.

With: A Practical Guide to Informal Mentoring and Intentional Disciple Making (Rainer Publishing, 2016)

Jesus taught multitudes. He fed thousands. He sent seventy out to tell good news. But He changed the world through only twelve, and specifically invested in three men: Peter, James, and John. How did He do this? He walked with those He called as disciples, living life and applying truth to their world daily. You’re probably not a wandering rabbi, and you may have a busy life, but if you’ve known Christ long, you ought to be pouring into another life in a mentoring relationship.

In With you will see how to take everyday life as a practical means for teaching another about walking with Jesus. The younger generation desperately seeks mentors to show them how to live for Jesus in a real world. You can help, and this book will show you how.
