Leader’s Edge (Missions/Ministry)


George Verwer

Moody Publishers, 2016, 128 pages
ISBN: 978-0802414854


George Verwer is one of a handful of historic organizational founders that are leaving a legacy through the movements they created. In Messiology, Verwer attempts to explain how his ministry philosophy broadened the doors of the church while being civil, accepting differences, and highlighting the need to keep the unreached in focus. This book reads more like a conversation with Verwer over a steamy cup of coffee than a deeply argued thesis. Yet, it is this very simplicity, as seen through powerful Bible quotations, which is Verwer’s main thrust.
