Evangelical Missionaries and the Orthodox Churches of the Middle East
Relations between evangelical mission workers in the Middle East and the Orthodox churches of the region have been characterised by tension and suspicion. Should mission workers ignore and even oppose these ancient churches, and should the Orthodox churches think of missionaries as ‘sheep stealers’? Or is there a way for cooperation and support to promote the worldwide mission of God – and, if so, how? Turning Over a New Leaf is written by evangelical mission workers for evangelical mission workers, but will also be helpful to Orthodox Christians in thinking about their relationship with evangelicals. Hailed as a seminal work when it was originally published in 1992, the present fully updated and revised edition represents over 30 years of experience in how evangelicals can serve in a thoughtful and sensitive manner alongside Middle Eastern Orthodox Christians.
