"Important findings of international consultations ought not to be lost," writes Stott. From the Lausanne Covenant to the Manila Manifesto, these key documents of the Lausanne Movement (1974--1989) will give you profound insight into the relationship between evangelism and social responsibility, the gospel and culture, and much more. Includes a historical introduction by Stott.
During the fifteen-year period between 1974 and 1989 the Lausanne Movement produced a number of key mission documents that have been gathered in this important anthology. Beginning with the "Lausanne Covenant" and ending with the "Manila Manifesto," these vital mission documents have so far been available only as "Lausanne Occasional Papers." Now they are available in book form. Each of the documents is presented here with its historical integrity intact. The only new additions to the collection itself are a historical introduction by John R. W. Stott and a foreword by Billy Graham-both important pieces of writing in themselves.
An American icon and the greatest religious leader of our time; hailed as the world's preacher, Billy Graham's career has spanned more than five decades and his ministry of faith has touched the hearts and souls of millions. He has preached the Gospel to more people in a live-audience format than anyone else in history - more than 210 million people, in more than 185 countries and territories through various meetings, including Mission World and Global Mission.
Today Billy Graham and his ministry are known around the globe. He has preached in remote African villages and in the heart of New York City, and those to whom he has ministered have ranged from heads of state to the simple living bushmen of Australia and the wandering tribes of Africa and the Middle East.
Since 1977, Dr. Graham has been accorded the opportunity to conduct preaching missions in virtually every country of the former Eastern bloc, including the former Soviet Union. Born William Franklin Graham, Jr., in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1918, he entered the ministry in 1943 and soon began conducting evangelistic crusades. In 1950, he founded The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which has sponsored crusades and produced radio and television programs as well as films.
Dr. Graham has written 24 books, many of which have become top sellers. His autobiography, Just As I Am, published in 1997, achieved a "triple crown," appearing simultaneously on the three top best-seller lists in one week. Billy Graham has been honoured with many awards. He lives in Montreat, North Carolina. His wife Ruth passed away on June 14, 2007
The late Rev Dr. John Stott is known worldwide as a Bible teacher, writer, pastor and mission-leader. During a ministry that extended to seven decades, he authored many books including the best-selling Basic Christianity, Why I Am a Christian and The Cross of Christ ; he was also the editor, (and author of several volumes) of the Bible Speaks Today. In more recent years he was Rector Emeritus of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London; President of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity; and Founder-President of the Langham Partnership International. He was awarded the CBE in the Queens 2006 New Year Honours. Stott was honored by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World."
