GlobalChurch: Reshaping Our Conversations, Renewing Our Mission, Revitalizing Our Churches

Product Description

Christianity seems to be in decline in the West. But many churches in Asia, Africa, Latin America and other parts of the Majority World are growing rapidly. Western Christianity can no longer claim to be the center of the global church. Before long, two-thirds of Christians will live in Asia, Africa and Latin America. What does this mean for global Christian mission? What does it mean for worship, theology, faith and evangelism in the West?

In GlobalChurch, Graham Hill engages with more than one hundred high-profile Majority World Christian leaders to find out what they can teach the West about mission, leadership, hospitality, creation care, education, worship and more. He challenges the Western church to move away from a Eurocentric and Americentric view of church and mission, and he calls the church to construct global missional conversations. The future of the global church - including the churches of the West - exists in these global exchanges. This resource engages with the work and thought of Majority World theologians and missiologists including

Endorsements

Graham Hill has gone to the ends of the earth and back - crossing theological traditions, cultures, and even oceans and continents - to bear witness to the gospel through the many perspectives of world Christianity at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Here is a missional heart that is wide open to the winds of God's Spirit coming from and going in unexpected directions. GlobalChurch unfolds the many tribes, languages, peoples and nations that anticipate the coming reign of God. Here is a discerning guide to what all this means today.
-Amos Yong,
professor of theology and mission, Fuller Theological Seminary

It is long past time those of us from the West learned how to learn from our global colleagues. Graham Hill leads us across a large and varied terrain of glocalized Christian holistic reflection and action, helping us see not simply how to listen but to learn and grow from the insights, actions and priorities of the Majority World church. Western Christians absolutely need this book. I pray that God will use it to spark a movement toward genuine servanthood among those who have been privileged to glean from the wise counsel Hill has gathered and brought to the table. At the same time, Majority World Christians also absolutely need this book. I pray that for them it will affirm the central role they have in contributing to God's work in every nook and cranny of our globalized planet and spur them on to continue living and reflecting on God's word in their own contexts for the benefit of all of us.
-Scott Moreau,
associate dean, professor of intercultural studies, Wheaton College Graduate School

Editorial Reviews

"Already GlobalChurch is a significant initiation into the thought and practice of the Majority World Church, with a passionate invitation for Western Christians to listen and learn."
"Reading GlobalChurch is like paging through a photo album and encountering family members you have never met in person. It leaves you with a deep sense of the faithfulness of God in calling the nations to Himself and also a renewed sense of urgency in seeking to fulfil our calling in the little spot in a big world where He has placed us."
