Planting Churches Cross-Culturally: North America and Beyond, 2nd ed.

by , ,

Baker Academic 2000

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Ministry training often emphasizes expanding on the work of existing ministries to the neglect of addressing the difficulties of planting new churches in North America and around the world. This volume provides a practical, thorough, biblical, and inspirational corrective. Incorporating relevant sociological, anthropological, and historical insights, Hesselgrave extrapolates 10 phases of cross-cultural church planting that are faithful to Jesus’ commandment to make disciples and to Paul’s missionary example.

This second edition draws on more recent literature, offers refined arguments, and highlights Paul’s ministry pattern. In addition, many charts, graphs, and forms bolster Hesselgrave’s skillful description of effective cross-cultural church planting.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
