ACCatalyst June 2011
Published 26 July 2011
When the school textbooks get around to chronicling 2011, it is likely that this year will be summed up as the year of the Arab Spring. Well, it seems like a fairly safe bet, just about halfway through the year. Dr Patrick Soohkdeo of Barnabas Ministries looks behind the headlines for this ACCatalyst and examines what the street revolutions that began in Tunisia and Egypt will mean for our fellow believers in the Northern African and Arab regions. Andrew Chin, a minister at Wesley Mission in Sydney, gives us another worldwide perspective as he examines what the Lausanne Conference in late 2010 taught him. He’s come back with a new sense of the urgency of spreading the gospel to the world. This edition of the magazine is, perhaps more than usual even, a ‘catalyst’ for prayer.
There is review of a new film about John Wesley, as well as reviews of the new short Christian film, The Board, and the disturbing portrayal of evil in the Australian film Snowtown.
