不少歷史學者對中國教會在這三十多年來的驚人增長極感興趣。雖然在過去三十多年來, 中國教會經歷不少風浪,卻能在短短三十年,由70萬增長至5000-6000萬信徒。這增長與早期傳教士的傳教策略有著極密切的關係。在眾多差會中,中國內地會是至大的差會,而賴恩融(1905-1996)是內地會的歷史寫手。從他的著作中,我們可以追尋到內地會四個非常重要策略上的改變,而這些改變足以影響整個中國教會的發展。賴恩融作為中國內地會的一位資深傳教士,不但為我們提供寶貴的歷史資料,而且更是在這些改變中扮演了一個極重要的角色。此演講的目的為研究中國教會的增長與內地會的關係及賴恩融在其中所扮演的角色。

The phenomenal growth of the Chinese Church despite many years of persecution is a fascinating subject to historians. Such phenomenal growth was not accidental, but the fruit of hard labor and effective strategies of missionaries in the 19th and 20th centuries. The China Inland Mission (CIM), the largest mission organization in China at the time, is the subject of this study. Leslie T. Lyall (1905-1996), the CIM missionary, wrote extensively on the history of the CIM especially in the period from 1930 to 1980. From his written records, we can trace four subtle but very significant changes in the strategies of the CIM. All these changes were vital to both the growth and the survival of the Chinese church. Apart from recording these changes, Lyall was in fact an active player in these changes. The purpose of this talk is to access the effectiveness of the CIM ministry in the light of the present rapid growth of the Chinese church as well as the role that Lyall played in the history of the CIM.

ALL ARE WELCOME!
