Dr. Burdick Publishes Book Addressing Common Issues Facing the Global Church
Gordon-Conwell Adjunct Professor of Missions Dr. Brent Burdick published his first book, Gospel Issues for the Global Church: Vital Concerns the Global Church Must Engage for Effective Evangelization. With over twenty years of experience as a missionary in the Philippines, Dr. Burdick also currently serves as the director of the Lausanne Global Classroom. His experience in missions, church planting, pastoral ministry, and intercultural training are the foundation for Gospel Issues for the Global Church.
The book explores eight global issues currently impacting gospel proclamation: diaspora: the movement and migration of peoples; faith and the workplace; creation care; disability concerns; mental health and trauma; media and technology; wealth creation; and the arts. Dr. Burdick’s desire is to “[help] local churches, missionaries, pastors, teachers, students, and curious individuals to learn about and discuss innovative ways to advance the gospel message globally and find ways to access resources in their local context for this endeavor.
This is the first book in what he plans to be a series about more specific and critical issues to be addressed by those involved in global evangelism.
