  • Jonathan shared from From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya: A Biographical History of Christian Missions by Ruth A. Tucker
    Christianity and missions are inseparably linked. It is impossible to imagine Christianity as a living religion today without the vibrant missionary outreach that sprang forth after Pentecost. This missionary vision was part and parcel of the life of the church.
    Note: So excited to be reading this book again for my next Liberty class!
  • Jonathan shared from Gerrard: My Autobiography by Steven Gerrard
    I love Liverpool with a burning passion.
    Note: My vacation reading (apart from my school books)
  • Jonathan shared from The Fate of Africa: A History of the Continent Since Independence by Martin Meredith
    During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.
  • Jonathan shared from African Christian Theology (Hippo) by Zondervan
    African Christian Theology will be a helpful tool in mitigating the harmful effects of syncretism in the African church. As such, it will also have implications for African society as a whole, not only spiritually but also in terms of socio-economic development. It is the sort of book that is needed by African pastors and is warmly recommended for seminaries and Bible schools as a foundational text in systematic theology.
    Note: Highly recommended resource and author!
  • Jonathan shared from Globalizing Theology: Belief and Practice in an Era of World Christianity by Craig Ott, Harold A. Netland
    Joel Simbitti, a missiologist in Tanzania, writes that “the greatest missionary problem of the church in Africa . . . is lack of mission-mindedness in response to the Great Commission” (2003). Could it be that the cutting edge of mission strategy should be to challenge and assist emerging churches around the world to catch God’s vision for the world?
    Note: Amen! This is exactly what we're here to do!
