• Learning from History: Missional Community, Institutionality — and The Benedict Option
    Vol 6 No 1 (2018)

    A movement that aspires to multigenerational missional impact must know how to reflect on and learn from the past, even as it innovatively pursues relevant expression of the next thing God is doing. In this issue YWAM leaders with decades of experience consider lessons for YWAM from Benedictine monasticism, in their reviews of Rod Dreher's bestseller The Benedict Option. Meanwhile the lead article by John Mraz considers the importance of recording our own history in University of the Nations' records system. As U of N co-founder Howard Malmstadt often said, "No records, no university." Mraz's article investigates a gap in U of N records in South Asia, and makes recommendations toward the future.

  • Glocal Conversations Inaugural Issue
    Vol 1 No 1 (2013)

    A few words about the content of this first issue.  We decided to organize the Table of Contents according to the author’s last name, in alphabetical order.  This happens to mean that the first two articles touch the subject of using entertainment media for prosocial messages.  The potential for nation-shaping here is phenomenal.  We are grateful to be able to strike this note in our first issue.  The final three articles share a common theme, the sphere of law and civil government.  The first addresses good government as being the will of God for the advancement of the Great Commission.  The second argues for the legitimacy of the modern state and our engagement in it.  The third takes a look back at the roots of English common law and the influence of the Bible.  Click on any article name, its pdf link, or the Editorial for more information.  Welcome!
