BookPerspectives on the World Christian Movement

Foreword

– World evangelization is now a possibility!

“This Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony, then will the end come. (Matt. 24:14)

– Until the whole world has heard the Gospel, Jesus won’t be coming back! We can actually speed up the time for Christ to come back!

Bill Graham’s school slogan “Knowledge on Fire.”

– Really, may we burn with even more passion the more we learn about Christ!

“Before evangelism is a program it is a passion.”

“God had one Son and He made Him a missionary.”

Preface

“Why, then, can you search the libraries of the nation, scan college and university catalogs, or peruse the curricula of public schools or even private Christian schools and fail to find a single, substantive course on the nature, the purpose, the achievements, the present deployment, and the unfinished task of the Christian world mission?”

“Second, our emphasis [of this book] throughout is on reaching all the earth’s unreached peoples… societies in which there is still no culturally relevant, evangelizing church.”

“It is our aim that these reading will not only inform and stimulate a new wave of pioneer missionaries, but will also encourage a rising tide of highly informed, supporting mission activists. Only thus shall we move ever closer to that day when ‘the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea’ (Isaiah 11:9).”
