Forty years after its founding in 1972, the International Association for Mission Studies has become an international and interdenominational network of individuals, organizations, and centers engaged in the scholarly study of the Christian world mission. IAMS provides mutual encouragement, fellowship, and dissemination of information for the advancement of scholarship about world mission and the encounter of the Gospel with cultures and religions worldwide.
Dr. Gerald H. Anderson’s 240-page history of IAMS, Witness to World Christianity: The International Association for Mission Studies, 1972-2012—which includes 44 photographs and an index—is an outstanding overview of the history of IAMS, and a virtual “Who’s Who” in Mission Studies for the past half century.
The financial support of The Egede Institute of Missionary and Ecumenical Research, Oslo, Norway; Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky; and an anonymous benefactor allow the publisher to offer the book below the actual cost of publication.
