Product Description

The Third Lausanne Congress in Cape Town, South Africa, convened in 2010, was hailed as the most representative gathering of the global church in the history of Christianity. Thousands of delegates from almost 200 nations gathered to hear from God and each other, as they cast new vision for world evangelization in the third millennium. Global leaders grappled with the most significant issues facing the church today, reaffirming the urgency of reaching a globalized world through both word and deed. Now collected in Christ our Reconciler are major presentations from this landmark event, addressing themes of:
  • Truth: Making the case for the truth of Christ in our pluralistic and globalized world
  • Reconciliation: Building the peace of Christ in our divided and broken world
  • World faiths: Bearing witness to the love of Christ among people of other faiths
  • Priorities: Discerning the will of God for evangelization in our century
  • Integrity: Calling the church of Christ back to humility, integrity and simplicity
  • Partnership: Partnering in the body of Christ towards a new global equilibrium
Contributors include:

Billy Graham
John Stott
Ajith Fernando
John Piper
Vaughan Roberts
Os Guinness
Tim Keller
Christopher Wright
.and many more!

This book also includes powerful testimonies of a North Korean student's witness, reconciliation between Palestinian and Jewish Christians, and a Nigerian archbishop's faith in the face of persecution. Together the worldwide church declares the embodied truth of "God in Christ, reconciling the world to himself" (2 Corinthians 5:19). Discover here the inspiring global witness to God's work in the world.

Editorial Reviews

"Cape Town 2010 renewed energy and vision to assist the U.S. Lausanne Committee/Mission America to hold the largest meeting in its history. We believe we have momentum beyond anything in the last decade to pursue our calling to collaboratively evangelize the U.S. and to partner with the global church to evangelize the world."
"I believe The Lausanne Movement is one of the most strategic ministries in the world--offering an accurate picture of global realities, influencing the future of the global church and connecting those who are most passionate for God's mission around the world. In today's environment of growing diversity and growing fragmentation within the evangelical church, The Lausanne Movement has an extremely strategic role in bringing the global church together and impacting world evangelization efforts."
"The evangelical movement worldwide is growing, outpacing many other Christian groups. It will continue to do so, along with Pentecostalism, as one of the most dynamic expressions of Christianity in the world today. For the last 40 years, The Lausanne Movement has been important to its growth and health. I suspect that this will continue to be the case for decades to come, and I think that this is good. If Lausanne did not exist, we would have to invent something to take its place. It is heartening that the evangelical movement has this to guide them in the years ahead."
"In every generation, we need to understand our times, as the men of Issachar understood theirs. Only through the dedicated hard work of studying Scripture and studying the world around us will we, like those men from Issachar, 'know what to do.' John Stott loved to remind us that Christ gave gifts to the church to share. He referred to The Lausanne Movement rather beautifully as 'an exchange of gifts.' We offer this book as a gift from the church on all continents to the church in your nation. May it be a means of enriching one another in our grasp of Scripture and in our love of Christ."
