The Resurgence of the Gospel, Part Four: The Reconversion of Europe

What will you learn from what God is doing in and through indigenous churches in the Majority World? What is your plan? How will you learn it?

1452 and the years thereafter created a whole new arena of operation for the church. There was a brand new set of problems, a new set of challenges, and an even wider vision for a reforming Church already in the throes of its re-formation. In 1452, it was not prepared. By 1498, it was still unprepared but learning. By 1517, it was slowly learning. By 1620, the learning process quickened. By the middle 1800’s, the factor of emerging Christian bodies within Africa, Micronesia, and South America had to be factored in to the total Christian mission. By the 1900’s, the error of colonialism had to be faced to encourage indigenous initiatives. In this present 21st century, the indigenous churches take center stage in global initiatives and the rest of us learning how to learn from them.
