    1. Since one of the authors of this book, Roger Schroeder, is visiting South Africa right now, and I hope to attend a missiological conference where he will be speaking in a couple of days' time, I thought I would post this review, which I originally wrote six years ago for the International Bulletin of Missionary ResearchThis book is a survey of twenty centuries of mission history in the light of different models of mission theology, and ends with a proposal for a mission theology for the 21st cen [...]

    2. This is an amazing tour de force of Christian Missionary history (and theology, as they point out). Even has the Mongolians in there (my ancestors)! From my Western mindset and perspective this is great, but i note from other reviews that the Orthodox and Pentecostal reviews don't feel like this sums their traditions/history/theology up well at all. As such i am reading with some caution, but a great reference book nonetheless.

    3. Just this minute finished the book! It is well written, reads smoothly and interesting. I do feel that I learned a lot from it. The only objection I have is that there are many, many references to Roman Catholic documents, however this is not unexpected since the authors are both RC.

    4. I didn't finish and what I read was very interesting. I hope I can find time to continue my study-reading.
