New Nazarene Missions text hot off the presses

Floyd T. Cunningham, 48, professor of Church History at Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary, Manila, the Philippines, has recently completed a scholarly analysis of the development of foreign mission policy in the Church of the Nazarene, and its implementation in Asia.

Holiness Abroad: Nazarene Missions in Asia (Lanham, MD: Scarecrow, 2003), volume 16 in the Pietist and Wesleyan Studies series, presents an honest account of the difficulties involved in establishing indigenous yet authentically Nazarene congregations and districts in India, Japan, China, Korea, and the Philippines. Holiness Abroad presents the crucible of conflict and controversy that shaped Nazarene missions policies and practices.

J. Stephen Malley, co-editor of the Pietist and Wesleyan Studies series, believes that Holiness Abroad “will be of interest to historians interested in the history of missions, American religious history and American-Asian relations, and missiologists." It will also be appealing to those Nazarenes interested in seeing behind the scenes on Nazarene mission fields and knowing more of the personalities and activities of both missionaries and local Nazarenes.

Cunningham, a graduate of Eastern Nazarene College (1976) and Nazarene Theological Seminary (1979), earned M.A (1981) and Ph. D. (1984) degrees from Johns Hopkins University, where he studied under Dr. Timothy L. Smith, the author of Called Unto Holiness: The Story of the Nazarenes. Cunningham, an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene, and a member of the Rockville Church, Maryland, has served as a professor at APNTS, since the commencement of classes in November 1983. He has served as Academic Dean since 1989, and as Officer-in-Charge for eighteen months. In February 2002, he was appointed as the Regional Education Coordinator for the Asia-Pacific Region, with oversight of the region's 14 institutions of higher education, and more than 5000 students across the region. In addition to his ministry at APNTS, Cunningham has helped to plant a church, and pastored other churches for six years in Metro Manila. Cunningham is the brother of Diane Leclerc, professor of Historical Theology at Northwest Nazarene University, the author of the award-winning Singleness of Heart: Gender, Sin, and Holiness in Historical Perspective (Lanham, MD: Scarecrow, 2001).
