Abingdon Press To All Nations From All Nations: A History of the Christian Missionary Movement

For mission to be effective today, it must take advantage of indigenous resources and recognize its limitations as well as its gifts. To All Nations from All Nations book broadly introduces prominent missionary practices and major historical figures using three perspectives. First, it takes into account the missionary activity proceeding from the margins rather than only discussing the center of theological and ecclesial activity. Second, it narrates the cross-cultural, cross-confessional, and cross-religious dynamics that characterize Christian missionary activity. And third, it emphasizes that much missionary activity is generated by national rather than international missionaries. The text concludes with a chapter on the postmodern and postcolonial world.
