We are committed to providing theological resources for the formation of leaders called to serve the global church.
Please click on the screen below to view pictures from our recent “Power of Books” event held October 21, 2013. The event celebrated the launch of the Center for South Asian Research located at the South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies (SAIACS) in Bangalore, India. The Center is being developed to provide a site for advanced theological research and publication by indigenous scholars.
We are beginning the process of recruiting our first group of scholars. We are excited and hopeful that their research and publications will enrich the work of other scholars throughout the Majority World and West who will now have access to contemporary biblical, theological, ethical, and pastoral scholarship developed in the scholar’s own regional context and addressing pressing issues relevant to the local church.
It’s not too late to make a gift towards these efforts! Because of a very generous donor, each gift will be matched dollar for dollar. Please click on the “Give” button at the top of the page to make a safe and secure donation!
As the Center for South Asian Research develops, we will send periodic updates – we look forward to keeping our supporters informed of the ministry. Thank you for sharing our dream of a global church that is enriched and deepened by the voices of indigenous scholars around the world.
The RECONCILE Peace Institute is so thankful for your partnership!
Your affirming e-mails, phone conversations, and library resources are an absolute blessing! The Theological Book Network’s generous commitment to provide 1,500 books will help improve the vital ministries of trauma recovery and conflict transformation which we offer in South Sudan. Thank you. Without question, life in a nation scarred by decades of
civil war, lack of development, extensive trauma, and profound community wounds is quite difficult, but the Lord has called our organization to this service. God is using people of faith from around the globe and in the Church in South Sudan to accompany the world’s newest nation in her journey towards hope, healing and reconciliation. Thank you for
investing your resoures into God’s vision for South Sudan.
As I write this letter, the South Sudanese pastors, teachers, bishops, NGO peace workers, and community leaders pictured above are traveling into places of unrest and conflict to make a difference. They all studied and trained at the RECONCILE Peace Institute. Your partnership reminds them, Christians of all nations support their efforts to rebuild their
communities. Thank you. I am sincerely honored to call you partners and friends.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Shelvis Smith-Mather, M.Div., Th.M
Principal of the RECONCILE Peace Institute
