Modern Missions and the History of Anglican Evangelism
In churches today, a fresh hunger for missions is growing. Replacing therapeutic approaches to ministry, there is a deep desire to actively share the gospel. By studying the Anglicans’ rich history of missionary engagement, from the early church to the present, clergy and laymen can learn which aspects to emulate and avoid.
In this addition to the Reformation Anglicanism Essential Library, Michael Nazir-Ali examines historical and global lessons from various Anglican evangelistic techniques. He seamlessly moves through different time periods, from the sixteenth century to the present, as well as different parts of the world, to see how the gospel connects with culture. Exploring the successes and failures of Anglicans, Nazir-Ali illuminates for readers twin aspects of missions: embassy (going out) and hospitality (welcoming in).
