Editorial Reviews

Books & Culture
Many fresh and stimulating insights to the world Christian missionary enterprise.
Missiology
A helpful and thought-provoking book for every missionary and every mission administrator.
International Bulletin of Missionary Research
"Here is vintage Newbigin, a treat for those of us who over the years have been inspired and challenged, time and again, by his lucid defense of the Christian missionary task both abroad (mainly India) and at home (mainly the United Kingdom).... If you have read some of Newbigin's writings in the past, here is a chance to refresh their memory with a synthesis of his thought. For the newcomer to Newbigin, A World in Season is a treat that should not be missed."
Lutheran Quarterly
A stimulating introduction to the thought world of an ecumenical giant of the twentieth century who, though past eighty-five and severely handicapped in sight, is nevertheless constantly producing fresh perspectives on the church, kingdom, and mission.
