In this book, we are brought back to the life of the Apostle Paul, a truly great missionary. We see how his focus on God's love for His people caused Paul to empower and equip those early disciples of Jesus. In the end, it wasn't about Paul - it was about Jesus building His church. 2 people found this helpful.

Although my background (Independent Baptist) is very different from his (Anglican), the basic principles of self-support, self-governing and self-propagation are still needed, and are indeed Biblical.

A study of the church in the four provinces. By the rev. Roland allen, . IN little more than ten years St. Paul established the Church in four provinces of the Empire, Galatia, Macedonia, Achaia and Asia. there were no Churches in these provinces; in 57 . St. Paul could speak as if his work there was done, and could plan extensive tours into the far West without anxiety lest the Churches which he had founded might perish in his absence for want of his guidance and support. The work of the Apostle during these ten years can therefore be treated as a unity.

Within a decade, St. Paul established the Church in the four provinces of Galatia, Macedonia, Achaia and Asia. This informative study focuses on the social background to the Apostle's missionary journeys with comparisons between his methods and those of the modern day. The book divides into five parts; the first examines the social and religious world which the Apostle inhabited in AD 50; the second addresses how St. Paul presented the Christian Gospel and his financial policy of self-support for the new churches

Wow! This is a great book. As a missionary, we observe all types of needs. There are physical, as well as spiritual needs. Many times we can be moved with empathy, rather than on the Lord's direction. In doing so, we run the danger of making people more dependent on us than on God. In this book, we are brought back to the life of the Apostle Paul, a truly great missionary. We see how his focus on God's love for His people caused Paul to empower and equip those early disciples of Jesus. In the end, it wasn't about Paul - it was about Jesus building His church.

I read this years ago, but just this year reread it. As insightful today as when it was first printed. I've read a few derivative works that reference Allen, but it's really better to just go straight to the source. If you are a missionary, or are considering missions involvement in any way, please read this book. There is so much we can learn from the pitfalls of previous generations, and as Allen points out, so much to be learned from Paul's missionary methods.
It's so easy It's so easy
Roland Allen provides an insightful, thought-provoking introduction to Total Common Ministry. It is an essential addition to any TCM collection.

This classic text on indigenous church planting is still relevant today, as it was in the time of Roland Allen a century ago in China. Although my background (Independent Baptist) is very different from his (Anglican), the basic principles of self-support, self-governing and self-propagation are still needed, and are indeed Biblical.

He has a startlingly fresh perspective though he comes from an Anglican missions background. One of the few of the more modern missionary writers that rethinks the approach of what we call traditional missionaries. He dares to dig into the pattern of Paul's church founding and offer a more natural way to bring the gospel. My only hesitancy is that he still comes from a minister-centered system which flavors his best efforts.

This must be a must read for everyone that is even contemplating a career overseas. Especially if the reason is to do Missionary work.
My wife and I worked on the African continent for 5 years and saw first hand the good, the bad and the ugly attempts even with with the best intentions. This book is dated in its vocabulary but the information is eternal.
These policies (chapters) are just as important today as it ever will be.
If you do not read any of the book but for chapter 6 on finances you have done yourself and your organization a great service.

Warning: reading this book may be dangerous to your comfort zone, and may result in your church leaders recommending that you seek God's leading somewhere else!
This was the textbook used in the Bible college I attended in the 60's, and it shaped my point of view on missions and church government for a lifetime. It was excellent in reminding us to compare our current practices with what worked 2,000 years ago, and to sort out the cultural imperatives from the denominational imperatives from the Biblical imperatives.
This book is a must read for anyone planning to live their life as a missionary. Even if you don't plan to live as a vocational missionary you will find a much better understanding of how missions should work. It provides you with an understanding of the template for missions life laid down by the Apostle Paul.
