A Kindle in the Kingdom: Christian Missions Strategy in the Caribbean by Randolph Walters

A Kindle in the Kingdom is a voyage through the journey of Christian missions. Christian Missions are a vital element of the growth of the Church. The history of Christian Missions is filled with challenging, fascinating and inspirational stories. This book is a study in Missions strategy and examines Christian Missions and the Holiness Movement in the Caribbean in the 20th century. It provides an overview of the origins of the Holiness Movement in the United States and in Britain. It examines re-kindling of God’s Kingdom in the Caribbean and posits that these were a consequence of spiritual awakening, renewal and revival in the United States and Britain. The book identifies three laws of missions and discusses the implications of these for Caribbean missions and theological reflection.
