As the first title in the new Evangelical Missiological Society series, this textbook is designed for use in addressing:
Contemporary Issues in Missions, Mission Strategy, Theology of Mission, Survey of Mission, Mission Principles and Practices, Strategy for World Evangelization, Church Planting, Church Growth, and Contextualization.

Dr. Hesselgrave helps us understand the discussions on hermeneutics, contextualization, discipling and training, and shows the underlying unity that lies in starting with a high view of Scripture. His work provides and agenda for missiology in the 21st century.
David Hesselgrave is a doer's thinker. Based on his background of field ministry in Japan and extensive observation of the world's mission scene, he has produced a series of foundational texts to guide practitioners. Scripture and Strategy constitutes a strong call to build the future of missions on the only effective foundation: the Word of God.
