Close our eyes and most of us can recite the Lord's Prayer by heart. It is as familiar as childhood memories. In some church traditions, we say the prayer together nearly every week, as a community standing before God. We call on those so familiar words and the comfort and direction they offer. The comfort that God is holy, that his kingdom is coming, that he provides just enough, and that he can protect us from ourselves and from evil. The direction that we are to worship him, that we are part of this kingdom-coming work, that we have the discipline of forgiveness as almost a daily task, and that we are vulnerable to temptation, so being on guard is a fine idea. The Wycliffe College faculty featured in this book take the Lord's Prayer line by line and excavate it for its forgotten meaning and its neglected treasure. Each brief essay, pondering each line of this foundational prayer, guides us more deeply into the very things the Lord's Prayer requests: a sense of God's holiness, a sense of our own truest selves--broken and redeemed--and a glimpse of his kingdom, coming.

Named by the International Bulletin of Missionary Studies as an Outstanding Book of 2014 for Mission Studies Over the last four decades, evangelical scholars have shown growing interest in Christian debates over other religions, seeking answers to essential questions: How are we to think about and relate to other religions, be open to the Spirit, and at the same time remain evangelical and orthodox? Gerald R. McDermott and Harold A. Netland offer critiques of a variety of theologians and religious studies scholars, including evangelicals, but also challenge evangelicals to move beyond parochial positions. This volume is both a manifesto and a research program, critically evaluating the last forty years of Christian treatments of religious others and proposing a comprehensive direction for the future. It addresses issues relating to the religions in both systematic theology and missiology, taking up long-debated questions such as contextualization, salvation, revelation, the relationship between culture and religion, conversion, social action, and ecumenism. It concludes with responses from four leading thinkers of African, Asian, and European backgrounds: Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, Vinoth Ramachandra, Lamin Sanneh, and Christine Schirrmacher.

Worauf gründet der erstaunliche Erfolg der evangelischen Freikirchen in der modernen Gesellschaft? Wie sieht die Lebenswelt der Mitglieder dieses Milieus aus? Auf der Basis von fast 100 Tiefeninterviews und einer Reihe von repräsentativen Untersuchungen wird das Phänomen Freikirchen in einer bisher nicht erreichten Tiefenschärfe analysiert und verstehbar gemacht. Das Buch zeigt im Detail, wie sich die Mitglieder zum Glauben bekehren, wie sie glauben, praktizieren, mit Autorität umgehen, einen Lebenspartner finden, ihre Kinder erziehen, evangelisieren, die Kirche wechseln und eventuell auch aus dem Milieu austreten. Die These des Buches ist, dass der Erfolg der evangelischen Freikirchen in einer Kombination von Abschliessung des Milieus und starker Kompetitivität der milieuinternen Angebote liegt. Diese Kombination ermöglicht es, sowohl den Grossteil der Kinder im Milieu zu halten als auch externe Personen für den freikirchlichen Lebensstil zu gewinnen.

In the year 1900 there were only 9 million Christians on the African continent. Today, the once dark-continent is home to nearly half a billion believers and growing at a rate of 23,000 new converts a day! A dramatic “southern shift” has taken place in the last 100 years that many in the West have never heard about. Today, most of the world’s Christians live in Africa, Asia and South America—the new global South. Here is a short introduction to world Christianity written by a pastor-scholar who discusses some of the exciting opportunities this presents for the Western church. This is a must-read book for every Christian who has a heart for global missions. Based on ground-breaking research that is illustrated throughout with real stories from the global church, A New Kind of Missionary will leave you wondering why a book like this wasn’t written sooner.
