There is evidence of growing interest in studying the abiding influence of the Lausanne Congress of World Evangelism of 1974 and the Lausanne Movement, which grew out of it. It seems to me as if it is especially the convergence in theological streams (especially the Ecumenical and Evangelical groupings) which followed in the wake of Lausanne which arouses interest. This book by the Filipino theologian Al Tizon, based on his doctoral thesis presented to the Graduate Theological Union at Berkeley, California, offers, in the words of Ron Sider in the Foreword, an excellent overview and analysis of this process of convergence and transformation.
