“To deliver strategic and credible information and insight from an international network of evangelical analysts so that Christian leaders will be equipped for the task of world evangelization.”
A new publication was released today from the Lausanne Movement with the underlying purpose of the statement above. Some of the titles found in the first issue include Where Next for the Arab Spring?, People and Their Religions on the Move and Choosing to be Salt & Light: Can the Church in India be a Model in the Fight for Anti-Corruption?
The Lausanne Global Analysis will be released every other month. Publisher of the LGA and Chairman of the Lausanne Movement Doug Birdsall writes that the LGA is the result of a “gap between the massive amount of information that surrounds us 24/7, and the ability to process that information and access credible analysis from an evangelical perspective.” You can read more about Dr. Birdsall’s publisher’s note here.
The LGA is a fantastic resource for Jesus followers around the world. The world is rapidly changing and now more than ever, people are on the move. The LGA hopes to use expert voices to assist Christian leaders in the discussion on what it means to be a global Christian.
As we approach the Christmas season I am reminded that Jesus was born into a hot mess of a world. Not only was he physically born into political, social and economical chaos, he continues to radically collide with our hot mess of a world today in a high-speed pursuit of his children from the east to the west.
I encourage you to check out the LGA and encourage your church family to do the same.
