Between Past and Future (EMS 10)
Evangelical Mission Entering the Twenty-First Century
Jonathan J. Bonk
God has worked through the church over the course of history. It is a story of tragedy and triumph, success and failure. Learning to draw from the past is crucial for the work of the future. Harvard philosopher George Santayana’s oft quoted “Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it” applies as much to missiology as it does anything else.

Therefore, the contributors in this volume remind us of the past in ways that are helpful for evangelical mission in the present and future. From ecumenism to Pentecostalism, from activism to education, from the local church to William Carey, this book provides important missiological “bricks” with which the future will be built.
