About the Book Books on Christian Missionaries and Missions is a member of a religious group sent into an area to proselytize or perform ministries of service, such as education, literacy, social justice, health care, and economic development. The Bible holds that Jesus instructed the apostles to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-18), and this verse is interpreted as providing the Great Commission that inspires missionary work. The word 'mission' itself comes from its use when Jesuits first went abroad in 1598, as it is derived from the Latin missionem meaning 'act of sending'. Many other denominations of Christianity, including Anglicans, Baptists, Methodists and Orthodox missionaries have worked throughout the world.About usTrieste Publishing’s aim is to provide readers with the highest quality reproductions of fiction and non-fiction literature that has stood the test of time.
