"The growth of the church today is on a scale that is unique in the history of the world." That is the thesis of THE CHURCH IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK. Comprehensive in scope and contemporary in accent, this volume is rich in missiological insights.
Anchored in the eternal perspective of Biblical truth, this book guides the reader through the historical development of the Christian Mission before launching into a practical discussion of the structures and strategies needed. Practical suggestions for breaking down barriers among local churches, training institutions and mission agencies abound. Graphs, charts and diagrams facilitate understanding and a sprinking of appropriate personal illustrations adds to the vitality of the book.
Although encouraging, Johnstone is also sobering as he identifies the challenges -- geographical, urban, cultural, sociological, ideological and spiritual -- to be met in order to accomplish the goal of "a church of every people and the gospel for every person." An incredibly rich source of recent statistics, this book is also a devotional masterpiece.
