From From Glasgow to the world: The story of the Bible Training Institute and its successors

By (author) Rose Dowsett

It would be difficult to over-estimate the pivotal role played by the Bible College movement in training workers for global mission. The BTI/Glasgow Bible College had close connections with missions in China and Asia and the China Inland Mission/OMF received great numbers of graduates from the college – graduates who emerged with a passion for the Bible, for evangelism, for missionary service in East Asia, and prepared for service in an inter-denominational and international missions.As one of the very first Bible Colleges in Britain, the BTI was an influential model for subsequent Bible Colleges.”From Glasgow to the world” gives the stories and testimonies of a handful of the hundreds of graduates who spread the Christian gospel around the world and of the many who made an enormous contribution to churches and Christian agencies in the UK and in secular employment.The BTI started as an act of faith to meet of the workmen from the foundries and shipyards and coal mines, shopkeepers and housemaids, among many others, who had been converted at the missions of the American evangelist D.L. Moody in 1874. They were eager to share their own-found faith, but were not welcomed by most of the rather austere Church of Scotland churches because of their lack of education (many of them had left school at 14 with little or no education) and certainly did not have a university degree.
