Description

In this book, Fernando Canale argues that the engine that must drive Christian mission is the biblical theological vision Adventist Pioneers discovered, quite by accident, in 1844. This vision compelled them to do things they never dreamed of: create a church and engage in a rapidly expanding global mission. The existence today of an emerging remnant, formally organized as the Seventh-day Adventist Church, is a clear testimony to the power of their vision and success of their mission.Unfortunately, not long after the formation of the church, the pioneer vision began to fade as laypersons depended more and more upon the writings and preaching of church leaders to the neglect of personal Bible study. Canale traces this history of gradual forgetting and presents the dire situation of the church today. He claims that the way to overcome the sluggish missionary efforts to our postmodern world is not by adopting slicker methodologies, but only by retrieving, embracing and applying the Biblical Theological Vision. Canale clearly defines this vision and shows how it will naturally drive Christians to embrace a God-centered, mission-focused lifestyle that will foster the spiritual unity of the church and fulfill Christ’s Great Commission for these last days.show more
