Leading Voices from across Christian Traditions Discuss the Mission of the Church What is the mission of the church? Every seminarian and church leader must wrestle with that question. No matter what designation a church uses to describe itself, it must also think critically about why it exists and what it should be doing. In this book, five leading voices representing a range of Christian traditions engage in an enlightening conversation as they present and compare their perspectives on the mission of the church. Each contributor offers his or her view and responds to the other four views. Contributors include Stephen B. Bevans, Darrell L. Guder, Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Edward Rommen, and Ed Stetzer. The book's format is ideal for classroom use and will also benefit pastors and church leaders.

In the early twentieth century, a good number of college-educated Protestant American women went abroad by taking up missionary careers in teaching, nursing, and medicine. Most often, their destination was China, which became a major mission field for the U.S. Protestant missionary movement as the United States emerged to become an imperial power. These missionary women formed a cohort of new women who sought to be liberated from traditional gender roles. As educators and benevolent emancipators, they attempted to transform Chinese women into self-sufficient middle-class professional women just like themselves. Motoe Sasaki shows in Redemption and Revolution how these aspirations ran parallel to and were in conflict with those of the Chinese xin nuxing (New Women) they encountered.The subjectivity of the New Woman was an element of global modernity expressing gendered visions of progress. At the same time it was closely intertwined with the view of historical progress in the nation. Though American and Chinese New Women emphasized individual autonomy in that each sought to act as historical agents for modern progress, their notions of subjectivity were in different ways linked to the ideologies of historical progress of their nations. Sasaki's transnational history of these New Women explores the intersections of gender, modernity, and national identity within the politics of world history, where the nation-state increased its presence as a universal unit in an ever-interconnecting global context.

On July 19, 1924, Eric Liddell was on top of the world. He was the most famous Briton at the time, having just won the gold in the Olympic 400-meter race. The story of that raceóand the one he didnít runówas told in the popular movie classic Chariots of Fire. But what most of us donít know is what became of Eric Liddell in the years after the credits rolled. As the storm clouds of World War II rolled in, Eric had already made decisions in his life that gave him the resilience to stand tall while others fell into despair. His strength of character led him to choose an uncertain future in China during World War II in order to continue helping the Chinese. He lived purposefully even as his world crumbled and he experienced the horror and deprivations of a Japanese internment camp. Ericís story is a story of hope in the face of uncertainty, resilience in the face of unspeakable odds, and inspiring vision of what life means, even when the final hour comes. The first race you run isnít your most important one. Itís the final race that matters most. You wonít want to miss this story of an Olympian who chose the better way.Eric Eichinger is an ordained minister in the Lutheran ChurchóMissouri Synod. He holds degrees from Michigan State University (BA), where he ran varsity track & field, and Concordia Seminary (MDiv). Prior to his pastoral call, he lived in New York for two years as a youth director for his church, and served with LCMS World Mission for two years in mainland China. Some of his additional writing can be found in the GodConnects series, where he wrote with a team of writers for The Lutheran Hour. He has also written a screenplay about the life of Eric Liddell, with co-writer, Howard Klausner, which is currently in development. Eric serves as senior pastor of Bethel Lutheran Church in Clearwater, Florida, and resides in the Tampa Bay area. He and his wife, Kara, have three children, and a tenacious pup dachshund, Doppelbock, who chews everything he can find with the work ethic of a velociraptor.

During the turbulent final years of the Indian Wars, a young Catholic priest entered service as a missionary to the Sioux Indians in Dakota Territory. Father Francis M. Craft rode a three-hundred-mile circuit on the Standing Rock Reservation and, in 1890, was a witness to events at Wounded Knee, where he sustained serious wounds. His journals provide valuable insights into reservation life, including the federal acquisition of Sioux lands and tensions between the Catholic Church and the Indian Bureau.

Thomas W. Foley, author of a previous biography of Craft, now presents key selections from Craft's voluminous journals and papers. In addition to documenting significant events, Craft's writings reveal his driven, stubborn personality as he went about his day-to-day routines: performing sacraments, ministering to the sick, even working to create an Indian sisterhood. Sympathetic to Indian traditions, he provides valuable insight into Lakota spiritual life.

By drawing on Craft's eyewitness report of Wounded Knee, Foley offers a bold reinterpretation of that event as a genuine battle rather than a massacre. The volume also features more than twenty illustrations, including two previously unpublished Wounded Knee maps drawn by Craft himself.

In 1812, eight American missionaries, under the direction of the recently formed American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, sailed from the United States to South Asia. The plans that motivated their voyage were ano less grand than taking part in the Protestant conversion of the entire world. Over the next several decades, these men and women were joined by hundreds more American missionaries at stations all over the globe. Emily Conroy-Krutz shows the surprising extent of the early missionary impulse and demonstrates that American evangelical Protestants of the early nineteenth century were motivated by Christian imperialism-an understanding of international relations that asserted the duty of supposedly Christian nations, such as the United States and Britain, to use their colonial and commercial power to spread Christianity. In describing how American missionaries interacted with a range of foreign locations (including India, Liberia, the Middle East, the Pacific Islands, North America, and Singapore) and imperial contexts, Christian Imperialism provides a new perspective on how Americans thought of their country's role in the world. While in the early republican period many were engaged in territorial expansion in the west, missionary supporters looked east and across the seas toward Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. Conroy-Krutz's history of the mission movement reveals that strong Anglo-American and global connections persisted through the early republic. Considering Britain and its empire to be models for their work, the missionaries of the American Board attempted to convert the globe into the image of Anglo-American civilization.

When it was first published in 1991, Missions and Money became a much-discussed book in Christian missionary circles. In this revised edition, complete with statistics, Jonathan J Bonk revisits the issue of affluent missionaries working among poor people. Bonk offers new reflections in the light of a changed situation, one marked by increases in the number of short-term missionaries and increases in the numbers of Asians, Africans, and Latin Americans who are leaving their homelands to serve as missionaries to other people. The conversation on the ambiguity of wealth and Christian missionary outreach is deepened with essays by Christopher J H Wright on the righteous rich in the Hebrew Bible and by Justo Gonzalez on faith and wealth in the Christian Bible and the early Church.

When sports ministry first emerged in the 1950s and 1960s, its founders imagined male celebrity athletes as powerful salespeople who could deliver a message of Christian strength: "If athletes can endorse shaving cream, razor blades, and cigarettes, surely they can endorse the Lord, too," reasoned Fellowship of Christian Athletes founder Don McClanen. But combining evangelicalism and sport did much more than serve as an advertisement for religion: it gave athletes the opportunity to think about the embodied experiences of sport as a way to experience intimate connection with the divine. As sports ministry developed, it focused on individual religious experiences and downplayed celebrity sales power, opening the door for female Christian athletes to join and eventually dominate sports ministry. Today, women are the majority of participants in sports ministry in the United States. In Playing for God, Annie Blazer offers an exploration of the history and religious lives of Christian athletes, showing that evangelical engagement with popular culture can carry unintended consequences. When sport became an avenue for embodied worship, it forced a reckoning with evangelical teachings about the body. Female Christian athletes increasingly turned to their own bodies to understand their religious identity, and in so doing, came to question evangelical mainstays on gender and sexuality. What was once a male-dominated masculinist project of sports engagement became a female-dominated movement that challenged evangelical ideas on femininity, marriage hierarchy, and the sinfulness of homosexuality. Though evangelicalism has not changed sporting culture, for those involved in sports ministry, sport has changed evangelicalism.

The irrepressible Jamie Stuart is a phenomenon. This is the story of an extraordinary life that decade-by-decade since the First World War bears witness to Glasgow's people and to the ever-changing backdrop of history. Above all, this is the story of the spirit of Glasgow through the long life of a man who rose above his `sair daunts' to reach out and inspire many thousands of people across Glasgow, the whole of Scotland and right across the Atlantic. Author of the much-loved and widely acclaimed bestseller A Glasgow Bible, this energetic nonagenarian is an unstoppable busy public speaker, always in demand across Scotland to talk about his life and to read from the Bible - as translated into the Glaswegian patter. A successful athlete in his younger days, Jamie has been an actor, airman, salesman and social worker. As an author, he has been amazed to find that A Glasgow Bible has been a bestseller for over 20 years. Above all, he is an evangelist, bringing his Christian faith into his work and inspiring those around him. He has inspired many, many thousands - and this is the story of the deep well-spring of that inspiration. In Still Running, one of Saint Andrew Press's most successful authors, Jamie Stuart launches this book in the year of Saint Andrew Press's 60th anniversary and tells the story of his life. In the process, he inspires readers with his indomitable Christian faith and his unfailing sense of humour.

The Reverend Howard Finster was twenty feet tall, suspended in darkness. Or so be appeared in the documentary film that introduced a teenaged Greg Bottoms to the renowned outsider artist whose death would inspire him, fourteen years later, to travel the country. Beginning in Georgia with a trip to Finster's famous Paradise Gardens, his journey - of which The Colorful Apocalypse is a masterly chronicle - is an unparalleled look at the lives and works of some of Finster's contemporaries: the self-taught evangelical artists whose beliefs and neuvres occupy the gray area between madness and Christian ecstasy. Bottoms draws us into the worlds of such figures as William Thomas Thompson, a handicapped ex-millionaire who painted a 300-foot version of the book of Revelation, Norbert Kox, an ex-member of the Outlaws biker gang who now paints apocalyptic visual parables; and Myrtice West, who began painting to express the revelatory visions she had after her daughter's brutal murder. Along the way, Bottoms weaves a powerful narrative, a work that is at once an enthralling travelogue, a series of revealing biographical portraits, and a profound meditation on the chaos of despair and the ways in which creativity can help order our lives.

A largely untold story of an extraordinary historical figure, this biography sheds light on the life of William Sheppard, a 19th-century African American who, for more than 20 years, defied segregation and operated a missionary run by black Americans in the Belgian Congo. This work shows how Sheppard returned to United States periodically, and traveled the country telling tales of his adventures to packed auditoriums. An anthropologist, photographer, big-game hunter, and art collector, the man billed as the "Black Livingstone" helped expose the atrocities that occurred under the reign of King Leopold, and this stirring work tells how he eventually helped to break Belgium's hold on the Congo.
