The Adventist church was born as a movement – a mission movement. When much of the church lost this sense of mission, it became Laodicea. But there were always bright lights who dedicated themselves to the mission movement. Below you will find a list of books – some downloadable in Kindle format, others only in paperback, and some available in limited quantities – that will allow you to enter into the mission spirit of the Adventist movement. We trust that it will inspire some of our readers to join this last push of this movement before Jesus comes. If you cannot go yourself, please consider supporting those who do go. You can scroll through our Mission Resources page to find places to volunteer or to support others who dedicate their time to missions.

You can click on the covers to browse the books, just like you would do in a store. This will take you to the Amazon store, where you will find more descriptions and, sometimes, even excerpts. You can safely click on “Buy at Amazon,” because that only goes to the page that allows you to buy. (Note, we receive a small advertising fee when you buy anything at Amazon after clicking through one of our links. This helps us cover costs for this site, so we can offer it to you for free access.)

  1. Please send me any information to help me challenge our people to support Missions. I am Adult Leader in the SS at The Village Church in So.Lancaster, Ma. I do not want a Laodicean attitude developing among members--we need to be active--it is our mission to do so. Thanks

    • Well, Charlene, you can lead the way in shaking off a Laodicean attitude by actively taking advantage of available resources. You can get inspiration from mission stories on this page, but if you'll take a closer look, you'll see a link to our Mission Resources page where you will find not only the usual Mission Quarterly, but current stories and podcasts. (If you find that a link is not working as expected, please let us know.)
      May God bless you as you seek to inspire your local congregation!
