Don Everts used to live as a "Safe Christian": doubtlessly committed to Christ, yet maintaining an introvert's comfortable distance from the earthly mission to which Christ's disciples are called. (It's a portrait to which this writer, who would sooner retire to his books than follow Christ to the ends of the earth, bears an uncomfortable resemblance.) In Go and Do, Everts summons natural-born retreaters like himself (and me) to robust missional engagement, while challenging world-affirmers to shift their focus from the mere pursuit of success and happiness.—Matt Reynolds1
