Congregational Life in the Developing World

One hundred years ago, 80 percent of Christians were either Europeans or North Americans. Today, they make up only 40 percent, with the remaining 60 percent coming from Asia, Africa and Latin America. These groups tend to be heavily Pentecostal, independent, non-denominational, and very poor. Researcher Donald Miller has studied many of these communities and writes his observations in Emergent Patterns of Congregational Life and Leadership in the Developing World: Personal Reflections from a Research Odyssey. Miller also offers suggestions for ways to create respectfully appropriate lessons from indigenous Third World Christian leaders to improve First World seminary programs and church leadership. A related summary of Miller's work is also available.
