Into all the World

The Missionary Vision of Luther and Calvin

«<p>… a simple yet profound look into the missionary heart of both Luther and Calvin. While certainly concerned with evangelism, theirs was a much more encompassing vision of the gospel: God’s glory extended to the ends of the earth.

Luther and Calvin, the great reformers of the sixteenth century, are remembered for their writings and theological debates, but do we think of them as great missionaries? Can we learn from them for mission work today?



The Reformation had a defining and far-reaching impact on the western world and beyond. It shaped the development of Europe over the next 500 years. It not only touched on church life and key doctrinal issues but had implications in terms of ethics, the birth of liberal democracy, education, the arts, science, the economy and much more.



This all evolved as part of Calvin's and Luther's evangelistic vision. With such a legacy, this vision is worth your attention.

«<p>… considers the way in which Luther and Calvin also sought to bring the truth of Christianity to all spheres of human life, a helpful reminder that Christ lays claim to the totality of life.</p>»

«<p>Superb! Calvin’s renewed vision for mission and evangelism with his strategic thinking and initiatives for the advance of the gospel provide an urgent challenge for Christians today.  The final chapter with its ‘Ten Lessons for Today’ is essential reading for any involved in church leadership and evangelism. You will benefit  immensely from reading this book.</p>»
