Let Me Save You Some Trouble

I am in a missions class right now, and let's just say the book we are reading has some issues. It's called "What in the World is God Doing?" First of all, the author (C. Gordon Olson) basically misses the Great Commission. He's one of those "Go, Go, Go!!!" -type guys (er...I think the point is making disciples as you go) . Secondly, he says that the purpose in building the temple was for worldwide outreach. I don't think I'm seeing that in the text. This post is just to save you some trouble if you're looking for a good book on missions. At all costs, stay away from this one!

Here's a picture of the book.
