From Five Barley Loaves

After years of researching, writing and editing, we are pleased to announce that Baptist Mission Australia has published, with Morning Star Publishing, From Five Barley Loaves: Australian Baptists in Global Mission 1864–2010, edited by Tony Cupit, Ros Gooden and Ken Manley. The book is a comprehensive account of the pioneering global mission work of Australian Baptists.

Beginning with the incredible story of a group of women who came to be known as the Five Barley Loaves, the story has embraced long years of service in the Indian sub-continent and subsequent mission work across Asia, Africa, Central America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East as well as to and by our own First Nations people.

The contributors are mostly former Baptist Mission Australia staff. Whilst disappointments are reported and failures acknowledged, there are many heart-warming¸ soul-challenging accounts of heroic self-sacrifice¸ long lifetimes of service, revivals and mass movements into the Christian faith.

Cost $49.95
