About-

There is a popular worship song that begins with the refrain, 'look what the Lord has done, look what the Lord has done'. This book does exactly that; it seeks to show what the Lord has done. Fifteen authors from five different continents identify what the Lord has indeed been doing, and continues to do, in their lives. They speak with passion, as each one seeks to bring glory to the Lord for His hand in their lives. Other than God's grace, the one constant that flows throughout these narratives is that at one point in their journey each author pursued a research degree via Oxford Centre for Mission Studies (OCMS) in order to further their very individual calling. These are their stories.

Endorsements & Reviews-

I would love everyone of our supporters to read these stories so that they can see what God is doing so wonderfully through OCMS all over the world!
--Bishop Emeritus Hwa Yung, The Methodist Church in Malaysia

This is a great piece about men and women empowered to Serve the Lord in different disciplines, in different parts of the globe. OCMS is really fulfilling Christ's comission by empowering people to preach, teach and serve in the whole world.
--Dr. Emily Onyango, Dean of Students, St Paul's University, Kenya

The Oxford Centre for Mission Studies (OCMS) is an organization with which I have been involved since its inception in 1983, and I have watched its development with great satisfaction. It is the conviction of OCMS, which I share, that during this century many of the influential leaders in the church will come from the global south.
--Rev. John Stott

Graduates of OCMS, in their diversity of backgrounds and contextual histories, represent the global church at its best. They have learned how to integrate socially engaging praxis with relevant critical theories while remaining faithful to the scriptural foundations of the Christian faith. Their transformative mission is changing the world for Christ and his Kingdom. This book will wet your appetites for more!
--Dr. Peter Kuzmič, Professor of World Missions, Evangelical Theological Seminary, Croatia
