George Patterson's 1995

"Come, Let Us Disciple the Nations"
An interactive, electronic novel suitable for self-instruction
and as a textbook in a basic mission course

Follow the fast-paced story of a small congregation that launched new churches...

  • in its own community,
  • next, in a culturally-similar community,
  • after that, in a culturally-distant people group, and
  • finally, in a land hostile to Christians.

As you read the text and view the 300+ images, you must answer questions posed by the characters. Your answers deternime the outcome of each episode, whether success, failure, prison or worse.

The story consists of actual events known to the author that have occurred in various church-planting efforts around the globe. The programme contains more than 300 pictures and sound clips.
