Endorsements

“Fritz Kling’s book on the seven global currents is a great primer. It should be basic reading not only for all Christians involved in global missions but also for any believers trying to reach out to their own city.” - Tim Keller, Senior Minister, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

“Fritz Kling is well-qualified to assess contemporary trends of churches in global missions as he has had his finger on the pulse of God’s work around the world for years. We live in a changing world but tend to miss the implications of these changes due to the limited perspective of our western provincialism. Based on extensive research and interviews with national mission leaders, The Meeting of the Waters effectively communicates the issues that will shape mission strategies in the future. This is a book that should be read by church leaders, mission strategists, and anyone committed to fulfilling the Great Commission as we move further into the 21st century.” - Jerry Rankin, President, International Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention

“The twenty-first century world is changing at a dizzying pace. Increasingly, for the Church to remain vital and relevant, new paradigms must be developed which address a wider-than-ever range of issues: poverty, human rights, ecology, justice, conflict, equality, reconciliation, and global events. In The Meeting of the Waters, Fritz Kling effectively identifies seven important trends that are leading the global Church into new and un-charted waters. The very relevance of the Church and its impact in the world will depend on whether and how it reacts to these emerging trends. This book is a must-read for Christians who want to stay relevant and effective while serving others and sharing the Gospel.” - Richard Stearns, President, World Vision U.S., and author of The Hole in Our Gospel

“This is an astonishing book. Kling’s survey of the changing world of missions reads like a fine novel. His truths are profound, his insights forged from years of hands-on work. For anyone who has a heart for missions, this book is a must-read. Kling grants remarkable insight into how today’s church-missions vision needs to grow to fit tomorrow’s challenges. Highly recommended.” - Davis Bunn, bestselling author of Gold Of Kings

“In this thoughtful book, Kling paints a picture of the ever-changing world God has called us to serve. Speaking from a life of experience and a heart attuned to God’s call, he lets us know that as the world changes, so must the Church’s response. I’m glad that we have him as a guide as we pioneer the next era of answering the Lord’s call to each of us: to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with Him.” - Gary Haugen, President and CEO, International Justice Mission
