The Third Lausanne Congress in Cape Town, South Africa, convened in 2010, was hailed as the most representative gathering of the global church in the history of Christianity. Thousands of delegates from almost 200 nations gathered to hear from God and each other, as they cast new vision for world evangelization in the third millennium. Global leaders grappled with the most significant issues facing the church today, reaffirming the urgency of reaching a globalized world through both word and deed. Now collected in Christ our Reconciler are major presentations from this landmark event, addressing themes of:
Truth: Making the case for the truth of Christ in our pluralistic and globalized world
