Summary
The messages given at the thirteenth Inter-Varsity Student Missions Convention were difficult to hear. They asked us to give up our self-centeredness, our ethnocentrism, our comfortable lives and to go out into the world so that "at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow ... and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord" (Phil. 2:10-11). The speakers at Urbana 81 came from cities and rural areas, from Asia, Latin America, Africa and Europe. But they shared a common commitment to carry the witness to Christ around the world. Eric Alexander, in his exposition of Acts, revealed the foundation for New Testament witness. Other speakers described the qualifications for witnesses and the many tasks waiting to be done. This volume records the speeches given at Urbana 81 and provides a basis for action around the world and here at home. - Back cover
