Product Description

A thorough treatment of Christian evangelism and missions by respected theologians has been difficult to come by until now. Two professors of Church History and the History of Christian Thought (both at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) brought together many of their colleagues from Trinity and around the country in 2006 to honor Dr. John D. Woodbridge (celebrating his 65th birthday and over 35 years of deep involvement in evangelistic missions as Professor at Trinity). Indeed the contributors to the book are all students of Woodbridge, and the book is dedicated lovingly to him.
Distinguished people ranging from Fred Beuttler, Deputy Historian of the U. S. House of Representatives, to well-published authors Erwin Lutzer and D. A. Carson contribute to this book, and their essays deftly fine-tune the subject, at once illuminating and engaging the reader. Historically retrospective but sufficiently progressive to address modern issues concerning the ongoing Great Commission, the book is divided into three parts: Early Protestant Missions, Modern Anglo-American Missions, and Majority Church Missions (outlining the great commission in Latin America, Asia and Africa).
An annotated bibliography of Woodbridge's contributions to these fields of study and a second comprehensive bibliography with over 200 resources rounds out this extremely informative and useful book.
