Cape Town Commitment
While other bloggers have already had more detailed discussions of this document, it still doesn't seem to be getting the attention it deserves. Neither critical or polemical, it is a current exposition of much of what is good and right about contemporary evangelicalism. This is no accident - it draws from the best of a century of mission work and marks the beginning of its maturation: the breadth of world Christianity represented is unprecedented.
So rather than simply rehashing what's already available, I thought I'd point out that a short précis is available here. This because I've not yet read and pondered another chapter of Bonhoeffer's Discipleship, but that's what I'm off to do now.
The full text of the Cape Town Commitment is also available online.
