Leader’s Edge (Missions & Ministry)

Ephesiology: The Study of the Ephesian Movement

Michael T. Cooper

William Carey Publishing, 2020, 242 Pages


This book is a missiological theology of the Bible that puts missions at the core of God’s purpose. It advocates for a missiologically theocentric movement that began in the city of Ephesus and lasted for the next generation. The book basically answers these major questions: How did the movement begin? What did its adherents believe? Who were its leaders? How did it multiply? What sustained its growth? In addition, the book aims to give its readers a deeper appreciation for God’s mission in the world through church planting movements (CPMs), which joyfully risk everything for the glory of God and the proclamation of the gospel to all the nations.
