Written to celebrate GBM’s 150th Anniversary in 2011, this is a lively and readable account of GBM’s history through huge changes and world upheavals. The early chapters explain the roots of the then Strict Baptist Mission, their passion for India, and the early days of the pioneer missionaries in Tamil Nadu.
The story of how the gospel came to the Kolli hills, and how a network of churches
was planted across South India is a long way from where we are now, yet those early
missionaries laid down principles and convictions about cross-

‘World mission is someone else’s job! Leave it to the specialists, the agencies,
and let’s concentrate on reaching our local community around our church.’ Sadly,
that is often how Christians think about cross-
God’s plan as set out in Scripture is to put the local church at the heart of world
mission. The biblical pattern is for local churches to send out missionaries, and
for missionaries to be answerable to the local churches that send and support them.
This was the conviction that changed Grace Baptist Mission into a church-

Reflecting on this during sabbatical leave, Ian produced a paper which has now been published by GBM as The Gospel in African Soil. Whenever we take the Christian faith into a new context, we need to understand the cultural and religious influences on the hearts and minds of those we reach. Europe and Africa have been brought closer by the ease of international travel and yet in many ways remain worlds apart. The Gospel in African Soil gives an overview of African Traditional Religion and seeks to understand the various ways in which Christian mission has interacted with this belief system over the past two centuries. It evaluates some contemporary Christian movements, particularly the Prosperity Gospel, and how they may be influenced by traditional African culture. It also reflects on some potential ways to better communicate the gospel into this context. Ian also poses us in the West with the challenge of depending on God in every aspect of everyday life.
