(p.1) Introduction
God's Agents

Matthew Engelke

University of California Press

The introduction provides background information on the founding and history of the British and Foreign Bible Society, as well as why, from the 1990s onward, staff at the society began to recognize “Bible advocacy” as a necessary complement to their traditional mandate of provision. This chapter also gives a sense of the theological ideas that inform Bible advocacy, many of which resonate with those in the “emerging church,” or “emerging evangelical,” movement.

Keywords:   British and Foreign Bible Society, evangelical Christianity, the emerging church
