Abstract:

Following a brief discussion of the mission mandate, Yamamori presents several pages of data to support the "83%"projection of his opening statement: "when the twenty-first century begins, an estimated 83% of the world's non-Christian population will reside in countries closed to traditional missionary approaches.". In light of the serious limitations on traditional missionary access, he proposes a new breed of missionaries, whom he calls "God's New Envoys" (GNE's). Their unique mandate is ". . . to reach the growing number of non-Christians who are out of reach of traditional missionary efforts" (p. 56). Much more than "tentmakers," GNE's are distinguished from traditional missionaries not only by financial support, but also by training and strategy.
