Spiritual Warfare, Leadership and Missions

Spiritual Warfare

Clinton E. Arnold, Power and Magic: The Concept of Power in Ephesians (Baker, 1992). 
By studying the ancient city of Ephesus and its practice of magic, Arnold unlocks the key to much in the book of Ephesians. Unfortunately, this book is out of print.

However, further books on the topic of spiritual powers by the author look promising (I have not read them yet). Here is a good starting point:

Missions

covercover

Kenneth Scott Latourette, A History of Christianity (2 Volumes, Harper, 1975). 
Strictly speaking, this book is not just about missions, but Latourette does pay much attention to the spreading of Christianity. Highly inspiring reading.

Of less discouraging size and also an inspiring introduction:

J. Christy Wilson, Today’s Tentmakers: Self-support – An Alternative Model for Worldwide Witness (Tyndale, 1984). 
Perhaps I included this book more because of J. Christy Wilson than because of the topic of the book. Whether you are thinking of becoming a ‘tentmaker’ missionary or not, this book is a good read.
