Al Mohler on Global Gospel Promotion

This video, announcing this collegiate conference in February 2013, is beautifully done and deeply inspiring. I appreciate Al Mohler for many reasons; one of the most important is that he has done careful thinking on global cities and how they relate to the spread of the gospel. His co-speaker at the Resolute conference, John Piper, has done a great [Read More...]

Rediscovering Adoniram Judson–and Zeal for the Gospel

Here’s a biography that’s just come out that is well worth your time, with the info appended from the Lifeway “New Academic” weekly email (good way to stay up on new books): Adoniram Judson: A Bicentennial Appreciation of the Pioneer American Missionary, edited by Jason G.

Were Fundamentalists Defeated in the 1930s and 1940s?

Nope.  At least not if you consider their amazing missions output in these decades.  This is my summary from Joel Carpenter’s marvelous Revive Us Again (Oxford, 1999), pages 28-29: Modernism wrought devastating effects in the Northern Baptist Convention. It sent 845 staffers overseas in 1930; it sent 508 in 1940. From 1920 to 1936 the [Read More...]

Ed Stetzer on DeYoung/Gilbert: Are Pastors Qualified to Speak on Theology of Mission?

The pastor-theologian is a subject of great interest to me, as my introduction to the book The Pastor as Scholar, the Scholar as Pastor: Reflections on Life and Ministry (Crossway, 2011) by John Piper and D. A. Carson  shows.  Because of this, my ears perked when, in the recent debate over the mission of the [Read More...]

Mohler on the “Metacities” and Their Massive Implications for Missions

Theologian Al Mohler just wrote on the rise of “metacities”, stratospheric cities featuring around 20 million people with unvarying density, little infrastructure, and little sustained planning.  The trend is highly noteworthy. Mohler comments as follows: As Stewart Brand argues, we are becoming a “city planet.” Vast populations are moving into huge international cities, drawn by [Read More...]

New 9Marks eJournal: Business for Missions

The latest version of the 9Marks ejournal is up (PDF here).  It’s all about missions, and there is a great deal of material to work through.  I found the following article, “How to Get Businesspeople into Missions”, quite interesting. The article first outlines how many Christians think of missions: “Most churches already understand how they [Read More...]
