About this title

Synopsis:

The World Missionary Conference, held at Edinburgh in 1910, ranks among the most influential and widely remembered events in Christian history. Though the outcomes of the Conference have differed in many ways from the expectations of its participants, after a century its momentous significance is clearer than ever. While the missionary movement went into decline, from its work emerged a world church, with deep roots and vigorous expression on every continent. As the centenary of the Conference approaches, the time is ripe to examine its meaning in light of the past century and the questions facing Christian witness today. This book is the first to systematically examine the eight Commissions which reported to Edinburgh 1910 and gave the conference much of its substance and enduring value. It will deepen and extend the reflection being stimulated by the upcoming centenary and will kindle the missionary imagination for 2010 and beyond.

About the Author:

David A. Kerr served, until his death in April 2008, as Professor of Missiology and Ecumenics at the University of Lund. Prior to this, from 1996 to 2005, he was Director of the Centre for the Study of Christianity in the Non-Western World at the University of Edinburgh. He played a key role in the inception and development of the Towards 2010 conference series on which this book is based.

Kenneth R. Ross, formerly Professor of Theology at the University of Malawi, is Council Secretary of the Church of Scotland World Mission Council. Since 2001 he has chaired the Towards 2010 Council which has coordinated Scottish reflection on the centenary of Edinburgh 1910 and acted as a catalyst for the broad-based international movement finding expression in 'Edinburgh 2010.'
