This paper discusses the influence of the Bible on the spread of Christianity throughout the world, drawing on four articles that have been written on the subject. The first article explains how the Christian mission grew out of the gospel, underwent a long period of global expansion through power tactics and today has changed to an atmosphere of dialogue and openness, instead of pushing people into one particular denomination. The second article provides background on Biblical passages that are widely used for mission purposes, and the writer identifies some important points made by this article regarding the spreading of Christianity through the Bible. The writer explains that the third article emphasizes the universal appeal of the Bible and the fourth article points out the importance of the Reformation and literacy in understanding the Bible. The writer concludes that this paper only contains a few examples of the historical and literary evidence that proves the substantial influence of the Bible on the Christian mission.
