We, the Church ... : Studies in Mission and Evangelization

`We, the Church' is a collection of essays from learned people of God from across three continents. The wealth of their wisdom provides lessons from the past, insights for the present and signposts for tomorrow. These `Studies in Mission and Evangelization' provide much needed light on several practical issues that concern our existence as the Church. Here is a diversity of contributions in history, theology, anthropology, sociology and missiology.

This is a Festschrift for Rev. Dr. B. S. Moses Kumar who has been faithfully serving His Church for over the last 40 years as a pastor, teacher and as a bishop. This is a labor of love from his wife and children.
