InterVarsity Press will obtain 170 current and nearly 30 new Biblica Books titles, including Operation World, the global prayer guide.

InterVarsity staff, students, and alumni, are saddened to hear of the passing of John R. W. Stott, Rector Emeritus of All Souls Church in London and Urbana conference expositor from 1964 to 1979.

On the evening of December 30th, as he delivered the call to commitment at Urbana 09, Urbana director Jim Tebbe announced a commitment of his own. Next June he will be leaving InterVarsity to return to a part of the world where he was born, grew up, and worked earlier in his life. Consequently, InterVarsity is looking for a new vice president for missions and Urbana director.

At Urbana 09 York Moore, InterVarsity's national evangelist, described God's cosmic plan of salvation in terms of a celestial light invasion: the first light from God came in the creation story in Genesis, the second light is the incarnation reported in the gospels.

More than 7500 participants committed themselves to long term or short-term missions involvement, by filling out commitment cards at InterVarsity's Urbana 09 Student Missions Conference.

College students want to change the world, today more than ever. The study-abroad statistics from the Institute of International Education indicate a growing desire for a global perspective.

College students from across the country and around the globe will be traveling to St. Louis in December for Urbana 09, InterVarsity's twenty-second Student Missions Conference. Many participants will be inspired to dedicate their lives to God's service. Some will answer the call to the mission field. And some will earn college credits.
