"Theology, Piety, and Mission concisely explains the Trinitarian missiology of Gisbertus Voetius, helpfully applying it to contemporary issues. Voetius developed the first comprehensive theology of mission almost five hundred years ago. Yet his experiential theology and evangelistic principles-both being thoroughly theocentric and biblical-must be studied today, not only for their significant influence on Protestant mission since the seventeenth century, but also for their relevant contribution to contemporary discussions about missio Dei, missional ecclesiology, church planting, and missionary motivation. Missionaries, church planters, and all faithful Christian witnesses will benefit greatly from Ronaldo Lidório's accessible book."
--Brian A. DeVries, principal of Mukhanyo Theological College, South Africa

"This book makes a valuable contribution to dispelling the myth that the Reformation did not prioritize missions. Lidório presents a clear and insightful analysis of Voetius's missiology, offering practical applications for the contemporary church. By examining Voetius's theological principles for church planting, this study becomes an invaluable source of biblical instruction for missionaries, pastors, and church members. It provides essential insights into the significance of spreading Christ's gospel and advancing His kingdom."
--Breno Macedo, pastor of Messiah's Independent Reformed Church, Holland, Michigan, and adjunct professor at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

"It is a delight to see that Ronaldo Lidório's research on Voetius is being published in English. Lidório throws open the door, so to speak, for readers to come and sit in the lecture hall of one of Reformed theology's greatest and yet least-known teachers. And much to their surprise and pleasure, readers will find that Voetius was passionate to promote the very thing that Reformed theologians supposedly oppose and undermine-the mission of worldwide evangelism through church planting."
--Joel R. Beeke and Paul M. Smalley, from the foreword
