Global leaders grappled with the most significant issues facing the church today, reaffirming the urgency of reaching a globalized world through both word and deed.

"This book is passionate, hopeful--and extremely encouraging." (Caleb Nelson, World Magazine, February 23, 2013)
"Cape Town 2010 renewed energy and vision to assist the U.S. Lausanne Committee/Mission America to hold the largest meeting in its history. We believe we have momentum beyond anything in the last decade to pursue our calling to collaboratively evangelize the U.S. and to partner with the global church to evangelize the world." (Dr. Lon Allison, executive director, Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College, and vice-chair of the U.S. Lausanne Committee/Mission America Coalition)
"I believe The Lausanne Movement is one of the most strategic ministries in the world--offering an accurate picture of global realities, influencing the future of the global church and connecting those who are most passionate for God's mission around the world. In today's environment of growing diversity and growing fragmentation within the evangelical church, The Lausanne Movement has an extremely strategic role in bringing the global church together and impacting world evangelization efforts." (Tom Lin, vice president of missions and director, the Urbana Student Missions Conference for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA)
"The evangelical movement worldwide is growing, outpacing many other Christian groups. It will continue to do so, along with Pentecostalism, as one of the most dynamic expressions of Christianity in the world today. For the last 40 years, The Lausanne Movement has been important to its growth and health. I suspect that this will continue to be the case for decades to come, and I think that this is good. If Lausanne did not exist, we would have to invent something to take its place. It is heartening that the evangelical movement has this to guide them in the years ahead." (Dr. Don Sweeting, president, Reformed Theological Seminary)
"In every generation, we need to understand our times, as the men of Issachar understood theirs. Only through the dedicated hard work of studying Scripture and studying the world around us will we, like those men from Issachar, 'know what to do.' John Stott loved to remind us that Christ gave gifts to the church to share. He referred to The Lausanne Movement rather beautifully as 'an exchange of gifts.' We offer this book as a gift from the church on all continents to the church in your nation. May it be a means of enriching one another in our grasp of Scripture and in our love of Christ." (Doug Birdsall, Executive Chair, The Lausanne Movement)
"This book is a must for every pastor and professor's shelf, as leaders present Christ to a globalized world." (Charles Self, Encounter: Journal for Pentecostal Ministry, Fall 2015, Vol. 12)
