The Church: God's agent for change (paperback) Bruce J. Nicholls
Here is the authentic voice of the church around the world- thinking, dreaming, planning, praying, working, suffering...
Over two-thirds of the essays and reports in this collection come from the Third World or from Eastern Europe. They present an unforgettable picture of the reality of the church in the world at then end of the twentieth century.
Explorations of key issues such as the role of para-church agencies, church renewal, and the church under persecution, are reinforced with detailed case histories from widely different situations worldwide.
Few other books give such a comprehensive insight into the way the church worldwide is thinking and acting today. Most of this information is quite unavailable elsewhere.
