    A Review by R. Bruce Carlton, D.Th.

    Professor of Cross-Cultural Ministry, Hobbs College of Theology and Ministry, Oklahoma Baptist University, Shawnee, OK.

    Can you hear the voices? This question being asked of the global Christian community regarding those who are church leaders from Asia is similar to a popular US- based cellular phone company that was once noted for its “Can you hear me now?” advertising campaign. Both questions presuppose that the ones seeking to speak face difficulty in being heard and understood. Eastern Voices: Volume 1 is the first volume in what is to be a series of compilations from Asian church leaders speaking to the global church, leaders who...

    EV1 final title slide 2017 04 25 flat 700pxUsually Pretty Far from the Benefits of Globalization

    Reading Eastern Voices is a different book. It’s not Western reporting on churches and movements. It’s not Asian believers working for West-based churches or NGOs. Rather it’s the voices of men and women, usually pretty far from the benefits of globalization. They lead and evangelize via Asian churches or agencies. The nine people here, from India, Bangladesh, Japan, Cambodia, Myanmar and three unnamed-for-security-reasons nations, don’t even raise money from the West, much...
