"Sent Out" is a compelling call to Christians to fulfill their God-given mandate to reach out to a lost and dying world with the Gospel.
Stressing that the heart of God is "that none should perish" and the will of God is "that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9), Don Overstreet takes readers on a journey to discover what it means to be an apostle (or messenger) in today's world; the character and spiritual discipline required for such service; how to prepare for inevitable challenges; and the importance of each Christian's call to share the Gospel with everyone, everywhere, in everyway.
Overstreet encourages readers to "become more open to finding out where God is working and run to catch up and join Him in the task." Explaining that the words missionary and apostle in Greek mean the same thing, God-sent, Overstreet says the most important tasks of the apostle are to reach people and start churches.
Speaking from the perspective of one who has had a lifetime of ministry, he discusses how to recognize when God gives a definite call to go to a certain unreached people group or geographical area. Citing biblical references, as well as contemporary and historic examples of believers God has called to fulfill specific tasks, Overstreet provides practical help and inspiration for those seeking God's leading in their lives.
