Matt Rhodes, No Shortcut to Success: A Manifesto for Modern Missions


  • Jackson Wu Mission ONE


Matt Rhodes’s No Shortcut to Success is a sobering gust of reality for missionaries dehydrated of spiritual encouragement and depleted by the pragmatism endemic to much missiological literature. Rhodes offers a far more extensive response that not only challenges popular fads in missionary strategy; he also equips the Church to prepare missionaries who bear lasting fruit for God’s kingdom around the world. For years, people asked me for resource recommendations that contrast the slew of popular books that emphasize rapid church multiplication. Thankfully Matt Rhodes has provided us No Shortcut to Success, an essential read I heartily commend to anyone who wants to see lasting fruit come from our missionary labors.
