Publisher's Description

The twenty-first century has opened with a rapidly changing map of Christianity. While its influence is waning in some of its traditional Western strongholds, it is growing at a phenomenal pace in the global South. And yet this story has largely eluded the corporate news brokers of the West. Layered as it is with countless personal and corporate stories of remarkable faith and witness, it nevertheless lies ghostlike behind the newsprint and webpages of our print media, outside the camera's vision on the network evening news. Miriam Adeney has lived, traveled and ministered widely. She has walked with Christians in and from the far reaches of the globe. As she pulls back the veil on real Christians--their faith, their hardships, their triumphs and, yes, their failures--an inspiring and challenging story of a kingdom that knows no borders takes shape. This is a book that coaxes us out of our comfortable lives. It beckons us to expand our vision and experience of the possibilities and promise of a faith that continues to shape lives, communities and nations.

Publisher's Weekly

Anthropologists don’t often write books that wrap around their own lives, yet the newest book by Seattle Pacific University professor Adeney stops short of memoir and opts instead for a visceral call to Christians worldwide to engage in something bigger than their own culture and church. Adeney’s travel and teaching have taken her to many countries, and she weaves stories from African countries, China and primarily Hindu and Muslim countries with piercing insights into the heart of global cultures. Her work can be read by adherents of any religion as a primer to a new view of world Christianity. She acknowledges that Jesus’ teaching and discipleship can grow within Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist cultures without missionary methods that bring cultural baggage that can detract from the gospel. She instances a Korean missionary group in Afghanistan that practiced methods of evangelism known to provoke angry responses; they were taken hostage. Best practices for particular cultures can prevent such disasters. Not primarily a book about American Christians and what they should do, this is a humble and complex anthem to the diverse kingdom of Christ found in worldwide cultures. (Dec.)

Editorial Reviews

"For the uninitiated as well as the budding scholar, Kingdom Without Borders is the ideal introduction to contemporary world Christianity and highly recommended for college courses and church classes on the subject."

-- Roger E. Hedlund, Dharma Deepika, JanuaryJune 2011

"Drawing upon personal encounters and published accounts, [Adeney] employs her notable gift of storytelling to narrate the ordinary but extraordinary lives of Christians around the world. . . . Her work creatively weaves together real-life experiences with reflections on the major missiological issues they illustrate. . . . Essential reading for anyone seeking to understand and participate in God's kingdom in the world today."

-- Diane Stinton, International Bulletin of Missionary Research, October 2010

"Adeney's stories should open the eyes of many Western Christians. Though stories of Western missionaries are interspersed throughout, the book remains a tribute to indigenous Christian movements. Each story that Adeney relays reveals a God who is not representative of borders. Perhaps it's the stories told by Adeney that will help North Americans see more clearly how the old story of the gospel plays out in new contexts."

-- Soong Chan Rah, author of The Next Evangelicalism, Christianity Today, April 2010

"This is not a statistically heavy book, nor a dry country-by-country ledger of church growth accounting. Rather, Adeney introduces the reader to the simple yet powerful faith stories of representative Christians in Thailand, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Bangladesh, Columbia, and many more nations. This is a deeply personal book: a testimony to the faithfulness of God in the lives of his people around the globe."

-- Murray Decker, EMQ, April 2010

"[Adeney's] stories of global Christian witness renew believers' faith and trust in God and reinforce that God's Kingdom truly is without borders."

-- Christian News Northwest, June 2010

"This book is a fresh view of the answers to the question, 'What is God doing in the world today?' You will be inspired by these testimonies, many of them are almost unbelievable."

-- Jan Arkills, The Lamplighter

"A humble and complex anthem to the diverse kingdom of Christ found in worldwide cultures."

-- Publishers Weekly, October 12, 2009
