S. T. Antonio, Insider Church: Ekklesia and the Insider Paradigm
AbstractSince the emergence of the Insider Movement paradigm, great debates have surrounded it. Comprised of two groups (i.e., missionary advocates and insider believers from Muslim backgrounds or BMBs), the IM’s soteriology, ecclesiology and missiology has challenged traditional church and mission approaches. Antonio enters in “not to solve this debate, but to … focus on … the nature and identity of the church” (xvii) and “outline a fresh and robust biblical vision for the nature of the church that can illuminate the insider paradigm and ultimately guide our efforts in multiplying churches among Muslims” (xxii).
