I read Roland Allen’s work Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or Ours? four years ago, while a student in GFM’s Mission Training School. I blew through the book so quickly then, that I didn’t learn much that has translated to practical application in my ministry. BUT, I know enough and hear enough good recommendations of it from people I trust, to know it’s well worth reading. That’s why I’m starting to dig into it again.
Alan Hirsch (of The Forgotten Ways fame) lets us know that Allen’s two most-read books are available online for free. If you’re not familiar with Allen’s work, these might be worth checking out. Here are the links:
For those who have been challenged by Alan Hirsch, he says of these two Roland Allen books, “All interested in missional movements MUST read them.” Not a bad endorsement!
