Foreigners and Aliens – quote from Roland Allen

Roland AllenThis year is exactly one century since an English missionary named Roland Allen wrote
a ground-breaking book, Missionary Methods: St. Paul’s or Ours?  In the book, Allen wrote truthfully and prophetically,

“Foreigners can never successfully direct the propagation of any faith throughout a whole country. If the faith does not become naturalised and expand among the people by its own vital power, it exercises an alarming and hateful influence, and men fear and shun it as something alien.”

One Response to “Foreigners and Aliens – quote from Roland Allen”

  1. Thanks for the article about and links to other articles about Roland Allen. I had tried reading Missionary Methods years ago but Allen’s writing style is so difficult that I gave up trying to get through it. Then, two years ago I made another attempt at it, did read it, and was very blessed. So, much so that I read Spontaneous Expansion and was blessed by it as well. Both books contain so much truth and insight into missions and church planting. Church leaders today would do well if they read Allen’s books and let the Lord speak to them about the way our church’s view and “do” missionary work in the USA and around the world. We would see a greater harvest of souls if we did. Note: I have written a number of articles on Missionary Methods on my blog site, http://www.tangiblethoughts.wordpress.com,and writing about Spontaneous Expansion now. Just search for “Roland Allen” or the books by name.
