Full Product Description
In turn, Lebanese Baptists prompted missionaries to re-think their ideas about mission, Muslim-Christian relations, and even American foreign policy in the region.But Trexler also reveals how missionaries efforts to evangelize Muslims came to threaten the very security of the Lebanese Baptists. Trexler shows how Baptist missionary theology and praxis in Lebanon had more to do with bolstering an insular Baptist identity in the U.S. than it did in engaging in interfaith relationships with Lebanese Muslims. Ironically, American Baptists efforts to help ultimately spun out of control and led to unintended consequences. Trexlers study of Baptists in Lebanon serves as a warning for missional identity everywhere, Baptist or not: missionary insistence on a narrow and politically useful definition of what it means to be Christian can both aid and undermine, build and destabilize.
