4 thoughts on “Your Missiology is Showing

  1. mmmmmmmmm…yes! Page 4 and 5 are my favorite with 1,2, and 3 close behind. Thank you for sharing your thoughts-they are appreciated.

  2. These are telling.

    For the banter, on #4: there is a free PDF (and other formats including, yes, Kindle) of Roland Allen’s Missionary Methods on Archive.org:

    Google Books also has a “preview” of a later American edition:

    Alos, would you welcome Stephen Neill’s history of Christian mission from Penguin’s Church History series into your “right books” list?

  3. David,
    Thanks for pointing us to the free version of Missionary Methods.
    Neill is great, but boring. Tedious, even. Recommending that book as an essential to missiology would ruin what little credibility I may have.
    For history of mission, I’m content with Bosch’s subjective and (helpfully) selective The Mission of God.

  4. Re: Neill, EG wrote – “Recommending that book as an essential to missiology would ruin what little credibility I may have.”

    “LOL”, as they say! Here’s me thinking it was elegant and compelling. But of course, I have no credibility to start with. :) Also a bit of a catalogue, I suppose.

    At least the account of Christianity in Madagascar in the 19th C. on pp. 318-319 is quite powerful. (OK – two pages out of 600….)
