This volume traces its origins to the 2001 annual meeting of the Evangelical Missiological Society with the theme of "Lessons in Mission from the Twentieth Century." The papers from this meeting, combined with insightful essays by other EMS members, reflect upon the history of evangelical missions and upon its future. "Harvard philosopher George Santayana's oft quoted 'Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it' applies to missiology as well as it does to any other discipline. The past provides the foundation on which the present stands and the future will build. May God give us grace to draw from the lessons presented in this book in ways that will enrich us as people, as a church, and as a community calling others to come worship Jesus Christ."
