In 1911 global mission leaders met in Edinburgh, Scotland, to confront a sobering situation: two-thirds of the world was unevangelized, churches were declining in membership, and spiritual vitality and interest in missions was waning. How could such a weak and sickly church meet the challenge of The Great Commission? In response to this situation, Andrew Murray wrote this urgent call to repentance and prayer that helped spur on one of the most fruitful missionary movements in the church’s history.
Now, one hundred years later, the church finds itself in a similar condition. This contemporized version of The State of the Church gives a clarion call to all believers to full surrender and service to Christ our King.
