Excerpt


A thorough treatment of Christian evangelism and missions by respected theologians has been difficult to come by until now. Two professors of Church History and the History of Christian Thought (both at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) brought together many of their colleagues from Trinity and around the country in 2006 to honor Dr. John D. Woodbridge (celebrating his 65th birthday and over 35 years of deep involvement in evangelistic missions as Professor at Trinity). Indeed the contributors to the book are all students of Woodbridge, and the book is dedicated lovingly to him.

Distinguished people ranging from Fred Beuttler, Deputy Historian of the U. S. House of Representatives, to well-published authors Erwin Lutzer and D. A. Carson contribute to this book, and their essays deftly fine-tune the subject, at once illuminating and engaging the reader. Historically retrospective but sufficiently progressive to address modern issues concerning the ongoing Great Commission, the book is divided into three parts: Early Protestant Missions, Modern Anglo-American Missions, and Majority Church Missions (outlining the great commission in Latin America, Asia and Africa).

An annotated bibliography of Woodbridge's contributions to these fields of study and a second comprehensive bibliography with over 200 resources rounds out this extremely informative and useful book.

Excerpt


There are few more thrilling periods of church history than the great missionary movement which stretched from the eighteenth into the nineteenth century. Recognizing that Jesus Christ was the missionary sent by the Father, and that the Bible is the Magna Carta of missions, men like Henry Martyn, John G. Paton, John Eliot, David Brainerd, and William Chalmers Burns left home, family and love for the sake of Christ and to spread his bood news. The narratives of their monumental labors and sufferings and their strong longings to see Christ glorified in the salvation of the nations make awe-inspiring and God-honoring reading.

Formerly a missionary to Sierra Leone, and Professor Emeritus of the Study of Christianity in the non-Western World at the University of Edinburgh, Andrew F. Walls is arguably, the foremost intellectual authority on Christian Missions today. In , Walls brings together lectures and articles, many for the first time, and makes them available to scholars, students, and laity interested in World Missions. While examining many of the most pressing issues in missions today such as, indigenous forms of Christianity, colonialism in Modern Africa, Walls also reveal the paradoxes of the Christian movement as a whole in discussing just how different specific form s of Christianity are from one another. Winner of the 1997 Christianity Today Book Award this book is a definitive work on the way Christianity has spread around the world, the forms it has taken, and the challenges that lie ahead. Missionary Movement in Christian History: Studies in the Transmission of Faith is an excellent place to begin Missiological study, or to augment already existing research.

A History of Christian Missions traces the expansion of Christianity from its origins in the Middle East to Rome, the rest of Europe and the Colonies, and assesses its position as a major religious force worldwide. Many of the world's religions have not actively sought converts, largely because they have been too regional in character. Buddhism, Islam and Christianity, however, are the three chief exceptions to this, and Christianity in particular has found a home in almost every country in the world.

Professor Neill's excellent and authoritative survey examines centuries of missionary activity, beginning with Christ and working through the Crusades and the colonization of Asia and Africa up to the present day, concluding with a shrewd look ahead to what the future may hold for the Christian Church. This revised edition of the late Professor Neill's work has been updated according to his projected intentions by Owen Chadwick.

From the publisher: Changing Frontiers of Mission reflects on the history of missions and seeks to discern its path for the future. Ever since Jesus' time, mission must precede the church. The renewal of the church is linked to recovery of this priority of mission. Unlike in the past, where the "frontier" was a geographical location, the future "frontier" is symbolizd by outward movement, away from the status quo, and toward new challenges, growth and opportunities. Shenk organizes the book in sections dealing with: (1) theological frontiers; (2) frontiers in theory and practice; (3) contemporary Western culture as a missiological frontier; and (4) discerning changes in the historical patterns of carrying on mission. With Christians in every part of the world, the "frontier" needs to be flexible and responsive to the socio-political changes in our world. Outdated geographical boundaries of "frontier" may be the greatest obstacle to missions in our world today.
