Foreword

Leighton Ford, Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization/ LCWE, 1981:

God is raising up a new army of Kingdom volunteers in our day.

Across every continent are emerging “World Christians” – young women and men with world horizons, committed to “Exodus” lifestyles, possessed by the goal of discipling the nations to Jesus Christ the Lord.

At the close of a recent conference in Korea, a hundred thousand Korean youth pledged to spend a year overseas spreading the good seed of the gospel!

In Europe the periodic Lausanne Mission Conferences are now drawing over 10,000 young people.

And in North America the Urbana Conventions of Inter-Varsity, as well as the training programs of Campus Crusade, the Navigators, Inter-Varsity, Youth With a Mission, and many groups and denominations, are part of this stirring…

At the dedication of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College [Mark Noll] the Student Body President gave a most moving call for us to be World Christians – dedicated to reaching the lost and feeding the hungry peoples of the world.

At some secular campuses, the Christian student groups are seemingly out-stripping some of their Christian college counterparts with their zeal for evangelism, discipleship and missions!…

We may be on the verge of a movement comparable to the great waves of student volunteers at the beginning of the century.

If so, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement can be a key tool. The editors have been given to us as an impressive (if not exhaustive) collection of readings. I know of nothing quite like it. (Incidentally, the editorial partnership of Dr. Ralph Winter with Steven Hawthorne and friends is in itself a splendid example of the possibilities of partnership between senior missionary experience and younger missionary vision.)

I commend this volume because it sets world evangelization in its proper priority

Robert E. Coleman

Hope of a Coming World Revival

“Scripture does point to some kind of a climactic spiritual conflagration, though the time and extent of its coming can be variously understood… How one understands the millennium, tribulation and rapture must be taken in to account. Obviously those who see Christ returning to take away his church before his millennial reign will look at the awakening from a different perspective than those who view it as an aspect of the millennium. Notwithstanding the differences, nothing in the varying positions necessarily precludes a coming world revival.” [underlining added]

 

“Certainly a spiritual awakening around the world would be in keeping with the all-embracing love of God (John 3:16). In a dramatic way, it would give notice of the gospel mandate to reach ‘the uttermost part of the earth.’”
