“In my global travels, I encounter persecution and religious liberty issues as a prime challenge to the Christian church.”

Dr Geoff Tunnicliffe, International Director, World Evangelical Alliance

Mission is being done in the context of suffering and persecution and to undergird it with a solid biblical and theological foundation is the need of the hour.

Godfrey Yogarajah, Executive Director, Religious Liberty Commission, World Evangelical Alliance

From the perspective of reflective practitioners in church and mission leadership, we thank God for the Bad Urach Statement.

Bertil Ekström, Executive Director, WEA Mission Commission
Dr William Taylor, Global Ambassador, WEA and the Mission Commission

The dimensions of persecution and martyrdom are at the heart of the biblical faith in both Testaments, and need to be given much more theological attention, such as this consultation did.

Rev Dr Christopher JH Wright, Chair, Lausanne Theology Working Group
