Asia is the birthplace of Christianity. If Christianity is not usually seen as an Asian religion, that is because the history of Christianity in Asia has long been a difficult one. Whereas Christianity in the West received royal support, Asian Christianity has led a more nomadic and exilic existence. Today it is the least Christianized region of the world. Scott W. Sunquist is a recognized expert on the history of the Christian faith in Asia. Over the years he has published and spoken frequently on this theme. Explorations in Asian Christianity gathers his key writings on the topic and organizes them into four main categories: surveys that look at Asian Christianity in broad perspective, historical investigations that look at how Christianity shapes our understanding of history and historiography, missiological studies that look closely at issues of place, and finally essays on theological education. Topics explored in this volume include
  • Ecumenism in Asia
  • The cruciform nature of Christianity
  • A missiology of place
  • The Christian view of time
  • Global migration
  • Explorations in Asian Christianity sheds light on one of the most important but least well-known areas in Christian history.

    The Global Gospel describes how the honor/shame dynamics common to the Bible and many Majority World societies can be used to contextualize the gospel of Christ so it will be more widely received. The Global Gospel impacts many of the basics -- how we read the Bible, how we preach the gospel, how we understand our mission, how we train leaders, how we collaborate in the global church. The Global Gospel will stretch your understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ by uncovering a major blind spot in Western theology, namely, honor and shame. You'll be led on a journey beyond a legal framework of the gospel -- to one that is "legal plus regal." How you communicate the gospel and live out the gospel -- locally and globally -- may well be transformed. The Global Gospel is a call for theological dialog and missional creativity rooted in the ancient paths of Scripture and the relational honor of our King. You and your team will be challenged to reconfigure what you do and expand what you believe is possible in our Lord's Great Commission.

    "Global Mission" is divided into two sections: the first, Reflections and Foundations, comprises nine essays of a more general nature; the second, Contextualization at Work, contains twenty one essays of a more specific nature, most of them case studies from a particular location and people group. The thirty-three contributors come from five continents, and a host of contexts. Some are veterans, some quite young, but every one of them is passionate about God s mission, and about building bridges for the gospel in a way that is absolutely faithful to Scripture but also sensitive to specific contexts. North and South, East and West, demonstrate precious unity in Christ in our common calling."

    One of the most powerful forces in the twenty-first century is the increasing phenomenon of globalization. In nearly every realm of human activity, traditional boundaries are disappearing and people worldwide are more interconnected than ever. Christianity has also become more aware of global realities and the important role of the church in non-Western countries. Church leaders must grapple with the implications for theology and ministry in an ever-shrinking world.

    Globalizing Theology is a groundbreaking book that addresses these issues of vital importance to the church. It contains articles from leading scholars, including Tite Tiénou, Kevin Vanhoozer, Charles Van Engen, M. Daniel Carroll R., Andrew Walls, Vinoth Ramachandra, and Paul Hiebert. Topics covered include the challenges that globalization brings to theology, how we can incorporate global perspectives into our thinking, and the effect a more global theology has on a variety of important issues.

    Missions is the work of the church to reach and teach the peoples of the world for Christ's sake. The missionary call is a vital part of the life of every follower of Jesus Christ and, therefore, the church. But the effective discipleship of all nations requires a solid biblical, historical, and practical foundation. Therefore, the study of missiology demands the effective application of biblical studies, theology, and history.

    This text brings the rich heritage of evangelical missiology founded on conservative theology to a twenty-first century audience passionate for the proclamation of the gospel. Introduction to Global Missions brings the authors' decades of combined missionary and teaching experience to a survey text appropriate for college or seminary classroom.

    The book is divided into four sections and thirteen chapters. The text begins with the biblical and theological foundations of Christian missions, including a biblical theology of missions. Before moving to the practical and strategic issues of twenty-first century missions, the authors consider the historical development of missions with a view toward providing a basis for contemporary strategies. A final foundational set of chapters addresses the impact of cultures on the communication of the gospel. The remainder of the text deals with key issues and opportunities in missions, including church planting, missions in the local church, and strategies for disciple-making.

    Introduction to Global Missions provides a foundation for readers to consider their own missionary call, whether as a full-time field missionary or a church member on short-term projects. No matter their role, Great Commission Christians need a framework for doing missions well.

    A keynote book for the Lausanne Movement, The Lausanne Legacy: Landmarks in Global Mission collects the three major documents of the movement into one volume. This collection includes The Lausanne Covenant, The Manila Manifesto, and The Cape Town Commitment.



    The Lausanne Covenant from the movement's first meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1974, the Manila Manifesto, from Manila, Philippines, 1989, and the Cape Town Commitment, from Lausanne's 2010 meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, demonstrate the firm foundation and the growing vision of the movement. Two significant addresses from each meeting, from speakers including Billy Graham, John Stott, Lindsay Brown, and Chris Wright join these powerful statements of vision and belief that established and sustain the spirit of a global movement, a spirit of humility, friendship, prayer, study, partnership, and hope.



    With a foreword by Leighton Ford, Honorary Life Chairman of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization, and an afterword by Michael Oh, Executive Director/CEO of the Lausanne Movement, this collection stands as the definitive testament to the work that God has done through the Lausanne Movement in connecting ideas and influencers for world mission.
