I was grateful to receive a copy of Dr. Bruce Carlton’s new book Strategy Coordinator: Changing the Course of Southern Baptist Missions (Regnum, 2010). Carlton is a missions professor at Boyce College, and in this book he takes a critical look a dominant paradigm within Southern Baptist missions. From the introduction:
“The overall objective [of this book] is to seek to answer the primary research questions, ‘What is the extent of the impact and influence of the non-residential missionary/strategy coordinator paradigm on Southern Baptist missiology over the past twenty years?'”
Readers interesting in specialized, missological scholarship will want to take a look at this work. Get it here.
