You are warmly invited to join us for the book-launch lecture and celebration for Dr. Donald M. Lewis's In Darkest London: The Manuscript Journal of Joseph Oppenheimer, City Missionary, (Regent College Publishing 2018) . The evening will begin with a lecture by Dr. Lewis, followed by a response from Dr. David Bebbington. Following the lecture, there will be a book signing with Dr. Lewis.

Lecture: “ ‘In Darkest London’: A Window on Urban Life and Mission in Victorian London”

A small hand-written journal kept daily by a door-to-door evangelist in 1861 provides a rich minefield for our understanding of urban mission in the midst of the desperate poverty of slum life. This lecture will unpack what life was like under such conditions, and the efforts made to proclaim the Christian gospel in this context.
