Overview

The Gospel Among the Nations brings together in a single volume the most important primary documents illustrating how Christians have dealt with the most fundamental issue of the churchs mission: how to translate the gospel in new cultural settings. The texts range from Pope Gregorys famous instructions to Augustine of Canterbury on his mission to England, to W. E. Hockings fateful ""Attitudes toward People of Other Faiths."" Beginning with a masterful introduction to the theme, Robert Hunt assembles scores of texts that reveal the way that missionaries, church leaders, and local Christians have contributed to the extension of Christianity over two millennia, and thus made it truly a world religion. The Gospel Among the Nations is an essential resource for students, researchers and practitioners in world Christian history and mission studies.
