Item description for REFORMATION IN FOREIGN MISSIONS by Bob Finley...
Overview After 57 years of service involving Asia, Africa and Latin America, a veteran missionary is calling for a reformation in the way foreign missionary work is done. Bob Finley advocates the withdrawal of all American missionaries from foreign countries, and recommends supporting indigenous missions instead. He contends that there is no precedent for modern missions in the New Testament, no mention of apostles going to work in foreign countries, or anyone elso being sent to serve where he did not know the local language. The author cites numerous examples of how the presence of foreigners hinders the cause of Christ, and then shows how church growth exploded in China and elsewhere after the foreigners were all gone. This book is a must read for pastors, missions committee members, professors of missions, and all other Christians who are interested in foreign missionary activities of American evangelicals.
Publishers Description After being involved in missionary evangelism throughout the world for 60 years, the author maintains that traditional missionary methods are in dire need of reformation. He says that the way most missionary work is done today is counter productive and hurts the cause of Christ more than it helps.
