Tomorrow (December 8th) marks the birthday of the most important missiologists, Lesslie Newbigin.  In honor of the occasion, we offer this introductory reading guide to his work.


We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.

2. Foolishness to the Greeks: The Gospel and Western Culture

How can biblical authority be a reality for those shaped by the modern world? This book treats the First World as a mission field, offering a unique perspective on the relationship between the gospel and current society by presenting an outsider’s view of contemporary Western culture.
