Missiologist Lesslie Newbigin was no mere theoretician—his influential teaching on Christianity, culture, and evangelism came straight from the mission field. His work laid the foundation for a missional movement committed to the historical truths of Christianity while engaging people on their own cultural terms.
This collection includes Newbigin’s thought on everything from the radical Islam movement to the possibility of religious life in secular society. Newbigin’s thoughtful and practical words demonstrate the relevance of overarching theological issues such as the nature of the church and the essence of conversion.
