Product description


“Careful and encouraging, provocative and challenging, this book is much needed. Spencer shows effectively how the Church in the West can learn from distant cultures, and bears the fruit of strong international partnership links.” -- Rt Revd Nicholas Baines, Bishop of Leeds

“Theological education is assumed to flow "from the West to the rest" - but does it really? This ground-breaking book gives a concrete example of how the learning of churches in Tanzania is instructive for church growth in Britain. Stephen Spencer has been a leader in Anglican theological education for many years and has already made important contributions to mission studies. This book demonstrates how the global connections forged by missions of the past facilitate mutual learning and new pathways in mission today.” -- Kirsteen Kim, Professor of Theology and World Christianity, Fuller Theological Seminary 

About the Author

Stephen Spencer is Director for Theological Education in the Anglican Communion, based in London, and author of books on William Temple, Anglicanism and Christian mission.
