Perspectives on the World Christian Movement presents a multi-faceted collection of readings exploring the biblical, historical, cultural, and strategic dimensions of world evangelization. Writings from more than 150 mission scholars and practitioners (over 60 of them new to this edition) portray the history and anticipate the potential of the global Christian movement. Every one of the 170 articles and side bars offers practical wisdom enabling Christians to labor together in bold, biblical hope to finish the task of seeing that Christ is named and followed among all the peoples of the earth. The Fourth Edition contains over 60 articles and sidebars that are new to this edition. Many articles have been updated and revised.

Top Highlights

“There are two parts to the missionary task. The first is to see that the gospel is understood in such a way that Christ and His salvation are revealed. The second is to see that the gospel is received in such a way that Christ is openly followed.” (Page 140)

“ God’s mission is to glorify His name, to establish His kingdom and to reconcile the world to Himself.” (Page 77)

“The interconnectedness of our globalized world means that we are increasingly challenged to do three things simultaneously: to present the gospel (in our primary setting, to the unreached community), to defend the gospel (to the secular world listening in) and to recruit for the gospel (within the church).” (Pages 478–479)

“In summary, a mystery is a divine purpose, hidden in God’s mind for long ages, but finally disclosed in a new revelation of God’s redemptive work.” (Page 85)

“Holiness is wholeness. To be holy is to be wholly the Lord’s.” (Page 13)
