Introducing the Journal of Global Christianity

Feb. 6, 2015By: Darren CarlsonAuthor Bio

Two years ago I had an idea. Could we create a free online journal that addressed issues related to global Christianity that was accessible in multiple languages. Today that idea is reality.

Training Leaders International just released the first volume of the Journal of GlobalScreen_Shot_2015-02-06_at_7.44.28_AM Christianity, which has 120 pages of articles, book reviews, and abstracts. The journal is available in five languages: English, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Farsi.

The Journal of Global Christianity seeks to promote international scholarship and discussion on topics related to global Christianity. The journal addresses key issues related to the mission of the Church, in hopes of helping those who labor for the gospel wrestle with and apply the biblical teachings on various challenging mission topics. The journal targets an audience of pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers around the world.

Our first edition contains the following contributions:

  1. Darren Carlson | EDITORIAL: Introducing the Journal of Global Christianity
  2. Dave Deuel | Ministry Training: A Delicate and Difficult Service
  3. Daniel C. Owens | Genesis and the Vietnamese Story of Origins: Conversation and Cultural Identity
  4. Thomas R. Schreiner and Aubrey M. Sequeira | The Law and the Christian
  5. Mary Cloutier | Ibia J’ikenge: A Man’s Man Among the Benga
  6. Dieudonné Tamfu | Jesus’ Kingly Blessings for the Nations: A Missiological Understanding of Matthew 1:1
  7. Andrew Parker | Report from the Field: University Student Ministry Flourishing on the Arabian Pennisula
  8. H. H. Drake Williams, III | CLOSING EDITORIAL: Three Influences in the Training of Paul, the Missionary Apostle

The Journal also contains book reviews and abstracts on a variety of topics. 

Join me in praising God for all those who made this journal possible. May this journal also be an encouragement to our brothers and sisters around the world.
