Reflection Questions
  • What was the focus of the Edinburgh 1910 meeting that caused so much consternation among missionaries in Latin America? How is that an issue today?


  • What is the unique feature of the 1910 meeting which did not characterize any other global level meeting until 1980, and why did it deliberately avoid the term “ecumenical” as had been used for many previous global conferences?


  • What trend in almost all of the so-called mission lands eventually and inevitably thwarted the purposes and character of the IMC?


  • What are some of the alternatives to what happened to the IMC, and why is it that the current form of that tradition is structurally limited in serious ways?
