Description

Lausanne ’74 chronicles Ralph D. Winter’s impact on North American mission efforts. Some would expand that globally. Many see his presentation at the Lausanne Congress as the starting point—or tipping point—of that impact. Certainly, the Lausanne stage helped catapult the idea of the “unreached” into mission planning and board rooms around the world.  This book puts together Winter’s thinking leading up to and including that July day in Lausanne Switzerland and seeks to show how Winter’s own presentation impacted his work and future. It also attempts to demonstrate how the ideas were and are understood, and how they impacted our strategy for Kingdom service today. This book is a foundational reference for understanding strategic mission considerations, now and in the future.
