Publisher's Description

The late Lesslie Newbigin was widely regarded as one of this generation's most significant voices on Christianity in relation to modern society. Now that he is gone, there is a call for his unpublished writings to be made available. To that end "Signs amid the Rubble" gathers some of Newbigin's finest statements on issues of continuing relevance. The first set of chapters consists of the 1941 Bangalore Lectures, in which Newbigin speaks powerfully of the kingdom of God in relation to the modern - severely deficient - idea of "progress." The second group of writings, the Henry Martyn Lectures of 1986, deals mainly with the importance of Christian mission. In the last piece, his address to the World Council of Churches conference on mission and evangelism in Brazil in 1996 - which editor Geoffrey Wainwright calls his "swan song on the ecumenical stage" - Newbigin wonders aloud how future generations will judge today's practice of abortion.

    I have yet to read a dull, unhelpful book from Newbigin. This brief paperback is a gem. Succinct and thoughtful lectures and deep challenges from an experienced missiologist and missionary.

    Strongly recommended.

    A marvelous work on missions, preface by some work on the difference between the secular world's understanding of historical progress contrasted with his take on what the Christian view should be. Second half of book deals with mission's with a critical view of what has come before and suggestions on what should lie ahead. It is dated but there aren't many like him around now. You'll be underlining and circling a lot as you read the book. It could be a heavy read for some, especially newer believers or those ignorant of Christian missions, but for those who like deep thinking understandably written, this book is excellent. Am going to search and buy more of his writings. Must buy. At the price offered, it is a steal.

    While this work is quite dated by now, Newbigin is right on target with his observations about the Kingdom of God, both in the Social Gospel as well as in the otherworldly view. His opinion is to be taken very seriously, because as a missionary outside of Europe and North America he could evaluate ivory tower theologies where the rubber hits the road.

    Excellent material for global thinkers keen to reflect scripture over whatever mankind attempts to achieve. Too deep for some readers but I enjoyed it immensely.
