Faith and New Frontiers (Brian Underwood)
A story of planting and nurturing churches, 1823 – 2003

This new history of ICS focuses particularly on ICS's church-planting initiatives in the last ten years as well as drawing out important lessons for future local and international mission through church-planting. In an era when Christians-especially in western Europe-seem to struggle to make the gospel of Jesus Christ heard, Intercontinental Church Society's planting and re-planting of international English-language churches in mainland Europe deserves study. ICS is, too, an unusual mission agency: with its help TUI Thomson was the only tour operator that featured chaplains on its holidays for the over fifty-fives.

This accessible, contemporary missionary history examines a decade in the life of this evangelical Anglican agency's long history, analyses the contemporary cultural context, and describes a Society that is confident in the Christ of the Scriptures, co-operative in attitude and which serves people of every conceivable denomination and nationality in the language of some 25% of the world's population. It demonstrates, too, the contribution a voluntary agency can make when encouraged by the Church to pursue its specialist calling. It is both relevant and inspiring. The book covers

The first 170 years of ICS's work especially in Canada, Australia and Europe.

The cultural and spiritual context of mission in Europe in the closing years of the 20th century

ICS's partnership with established chaplaincies in Europe and the development of its seasonal ministry from 1992 to 2002

Truth to Tell (Brian Underwood)
An engaging new book. It is a collection of sketches about the lives and ventures of ordinary people who achieved quite extraordinary things in taking the gospel message to English-speaking people all over the world. Covering the period from 1823 to 2003, it the story too of a movement which became Intercontinental Church Society - a mission society whose unique role it is to present the gospel story in foreign countries through the English language. The main story it tells, of course, is of the story of Jesus. The title phrase was to be found on Jesus' lips (John 5: 24) when he promised that those who heard his word (the story of salvation) and believed in him would receive eternal life. This is Brian's fourth book about ICS.
