Product Description

The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization (Cape Town, 16-25 October 2010) brought together 4,200 evangelical leaders from 198 countries, and extended to hundreds of thousands more, participating in meetings around the world, and online. Its goal? To bring a fresh challenge to the global Church to bear witness to Jesus Christ and all his teaching - in every nation, in every sphere of society, and in the realm of ideas.

The Cape Town Commitment is the fruit of this endeavour. It stands in an historic line, building on both The Lausanne Covenant and The Manila Manifesto. It is in two parts. Part l sets out biblical convictions, passed down to us in the scriptures, and Part ll sounds the call to action.

The Cape Town Commitment will act as a roadmap for The Lausanne Movement over the next ten years. Its prophetic call to work and to pray will, we hope, draw churches, mission agencies, seminaries, Christians in the workplace, and student fellowships on campus to embrace it, and to find their part in its outworking.

What are our hopes for The Cape Town Commitment? We trust that it will be talked about, discussed and afforded weight as a united statement from evangelicals globally; that it will shape agendas in Christian ministry; that it will strengthen thought-leaders in the public arena; and that bold initiatives and partnerships will issue from it.

Part of The Didasko Files series.

Publisher's Description

The Third Lausanne Congress
Foreword by Doug Birdsall and Lindsay Brown

In October of 2010, over 4,000 Christian leaders from 200 countries met in Cape Town, South Africa, to discuss critical issues of our time as they relate to the Church and evangelization. This was the Third Lausanne Congress, convening nearly 35 years after the original Lausanne Congress in 1974, called by Billy Graham.

Written as a roadmap for the Lausanne Movement, The Cape Town Commit-ment presents a statement of shared Biblical convictions, and calls church-es, mission agencies, seminaries and Christians all over the World to action.

Prominent authors involved in The Lausanne Movement include John Stott, John Piper, Ajith Fernando, Vaughan Roberts, Joni Eareckson Tada, Christopher J.H. Wright and Rebecca Manley Pippert.
