International Journal of Frontier MissionsWhile roaming the web this week I came across the online archive for the International Journal of Frontier Missions . This is the journal of the International Society for Frontier Missiology (ISFM) and is published by William Carey International University.

The whole lot is readily available of the web, which is fantastic. The issue I was particularly looking for was volume 13:1 from 1996 on the theme, which featured the following articles:

  • The Great Commission in the Old Testament – Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.
  • All the Clans, All the Peoples – Richard Showalter
  • The Supremacy of God Among all the Nations – John Piper
  • Challenging the Church to World Missions – David Hesselgrave

  • Seeing the Big Picture – Ralph D. Winter
  • Melchizedek and Abraham Walk Together in World Missions – W. Douglas Smith, Jr.
  • The Biblical Basis and Priority for Frontier Missions – William O’Brien
