Baptists and Mission
Papers from the Fourth International Conference on Baptist Studies
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Baptists have always been a missionary people. . . . Yet the Baptist contribution to the history of Christian mission has remained sadly neglected by scholarship. This richly diverse volume makes a major contribution to rectifying that neglect."
--Brian Stanley, Director, Henry Martin Centre, Westminster College, and University of Cambridge
"This is a fascinating series of essays, full of information and rich in suggestion. It is splendidly diverse. . . . We watch the traffic on the great highways of the gospel, some of it moving off to bye-paths or caught in dead ends, not forgetting the occasional crash. This is not a book just for Baptists; it is a thought-provoking study of Christ's church militant here on earth."
--Andrew F. Walls, Centre for the Study of Christianity in the Non-Western World, University of Edinburgh, and Centre for the Study of African and Asian Christianity, Liverpool Hope University
"These papers . . . on the subject of Baptists and mission cover theory and practice, senders and sent, successes and failures. They illuminate some of the ways in which members of the denomination in many lands have undertaken efforts to transmit and embody the Christian faith."
--David Bebbington, Professor of History, University of Stirling
