Teaching Them Obedience in All Things (EMS 7)
Equipping for the 21st Century
Edgar J. Elliston
In the Great Commission, Jesus tells us to make disciples, teaching them to obey all that he commands. This volume explores the nature of this charge and various ways the church can fulfill this calling.

The first section lays the biblical and missiological foundation for the discussion. Not only is obedience essential; it is also empowered by knowing and delighting in God above all else.

Discipleship touches every part of a person’s life. The next section looks at the role of higher education and the church in teaching disciples to obey the Lord. Holistic training requires work from teachers across diverse disciplines.

Section three presents three case studies. Two chapters consider practical implications and approaches for the Western church as it ministers in a postmodern context. By contrast, a third chapter shares how training is conducted in parts of Ethiopia. Finally, the fourth section raises curricular issues for helping cross-cultural missionaries design contextualized training programs. It contends that the future of effective missiological education depends on careful attention both to foundational issues and appropriate delivery approaches.
