and New Frontiers (Brian
story of planting and nurturing churches, 1823 – 2003
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.
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
· 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

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.
