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. 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.

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

2011 Reprint of 1912 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Roland Allen, a young English missionary, first in North China and later in East Africa, sought to change drastically the entire colonial and paternalistic system of mission governance. He became a leading missionary theorist and a controversial, prophetic challenger of the existing order. He believed that indigenous peoples should be given control of their own churches--including control of finances--and responsibility for supporting their own churches. Allen completely turned traditional missionary attitudes on their ear. In his emphasis on an immediate, intense, local experiencing of prayer and community, he lessened the need for hierarchical control of the institutional church.

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.

Roland Allen provides an insightful, thought-provoking introduction to Total Common Ministry. It is an essential addition to any TCM collection.

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.
