  1. Global Diasporas and Mission

    Global Diasporas and Mission

    The movement of people from their homelands is increasing exponentially. Such waves of both immigration and migration triggered by various factors have created new opportunities for the church and its mission. This volume explores such global diasporas from both ecclesiological and missiological perspectives. Learn More

  2. Mission and Postmodernities

    Mission and Postmodernities

    It is here, under these trees on my desert island that this volume takes on meaning because its authors honesty struggle with an debate how we should relate to postmodernities. Should our response be accomodation, relatvising or counter-culture? How do we strike a balance between listening and understanding, and at the same time exploring how postmodernities influence the interpretation and application of the Bible as the normative story of God's mission in the world? Some may consider 'postmodernities' a Western dilemma. The contributions from some writers in the Global South (China, India and Korea) unfold a larger canvas and explore the implications for Christian mission. This focus on 'mission' is central: this is not just a book about the many facets and trends of postmodernities. It is a book about the implications for mission, for what it means to live as Christians and as churches in a terra incognita, in a world where we have not been before. We know how postmodernities influence the understanding of the gospel, and how it/they may make Christianity merely one local story among many. We have seen how 'truth' has become a plural word and how we are left with 'personal preferences'. But we are not losing hope. Here is a volume to be studied under the trees, on how to understand, how to wrestle with and how to confront these challenges in a constructive way, on various levels and in various parts of the world. Let me therefore congratulate editiors and conveners of study theme three for bringing together such a wide spectrum of contributors and laying the stones for a useful and stimulating discussion of what it implies to witness to Christ in a postmodern world.

  3. Evangelical and Frontier Mission: Perspectives on the Global Progress of the Gospel

    Evangelical and Frontier Mission: Perspectives on the Global Progress of the Gospel

    A. Scott Moreau and Beth Snodderly The centennial celebrations of the Edinburgh 1910 conference offered Christians of all stripes multiple opportunities to reflect on the past century of mission. Over the course of the twentieth century one of the stories of the church that has moved towards center stage is the growth of evangelicalism around the world. While certainly until the late 1980s this went largely unnoticed among the academic elite of the world, even so by then the vast majority of the missionaries serving to and from every corner of the globe were be framed in some way by this evangelical surge. As we reflect on the past century, then, the stories of the evangelical world church deserve to be heard. This extraordinary compendium documents and illustrates the movement from what Edinburgh 1910 designated as ‘unoccupied fields’ to what R. Winter strategically designated as ‘unreached people groups’ thus repioneering frontier missiology focused on 'finishing the task. Peter Kuzmic Learn More

  4. Witnessing to Christ in a Pluralistic Age: Christian Mission among Other Faiths

    Witnessing to Christ in a Pluralistic Age: Christian Mission among Other Faiths

    Lalsangkima Pachuau and Knud Jorgensen The relationship of Christian faith and mission to other living faiths is a core issue in contemporary mission. In a world where plurality of faiths is increasingly becoming a norm of life, insights on the theology of religious plurality are needed to strengthen our understanding of our own faith of others. Even though religious diversity is not new, we are seeing an upsurge in interest on the theologies of religions among all Christian confessional traditions. One reason is the 'discovery' in the West of other religions living in its own midst and neighbourhood. One may justifiably claim that no other issue in Christian mission is more important and more difficult than the theologies of religions. This will remain a major challenge for mission in a new century. 'Christian Mission among Other Faiths' was one of the Edinburgh 2010 themes. As part of the study process, position papers and case studies were invited from a wide range of contributors representing various theological positions, confessional traditions and denominational bodies. The quality of the studies and the variety they represent convinced us to publish in this form. The position papers are reflections on the theme by scholars belonging to Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Protestant-Conciliar, Protestant-Evangelical, Pentecostal, and Seventh-Day Adventist Churches. Among the case studies are articles on Christian mission among Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, new religious movements and folk or primal religions. Learn More

  5.  Interfaith Relations after One Hundred Years: Christian Mission among Other Faiths

    Interfaith Relations after One Hundred Years: Christian Mission among Other Faiths

    Edinburgh 2010 has a special relevance for Christians in India particurlarly when we consider the contributions Indian Christians continue to make both academically as well as in their day-to-day lives to living out and promoting interfaith relations and interfaith dialogue. For the typical Indian Christian, living with a neighbour of another faith is a daily reality and this pluralism has also influenced Christians in India to view ecumenism in a realistic and appreciative manner. The essays in this book reflect not only this acceptance and celebration of pluralism within India but also by extension an acceptance as well as a need for unity among Indian Christians of different denominations. The essays were presented and studied at a preparatory consultation on Study Theme II: Christian Mission Among Other Faiths under the theme "Interfaith Relations Among Other Faiths" at the United Theological College, Bangalore, India from 17th - 19th July 2009.

  6. The Church Going Glocal: Mission and Globalisation

    The Church Going Glocal: Mission and Globalisation

    Tormod Engelsviken, Erling Lundeby, Dagfinn Solheim and Dagfinn Solheim The New Testament church is universal and local at the same time. The universal, one and holy apostolic church appears in local manifestations. Missiologically speaking the church can take courage as she faces the increasing impact of globalisation on local communities today. Being universal and concrete, the church is geared for the simultaneous challenges of the glocal and local. 'This book provides thought-provoking and inspiring reading for all concerned with mission in the 21st century. I have been challenged by its contributors to re-think our Gospel ministries in our new local contexts marked by globalisation and migration. With its biblical foundation, its missiological reflection and interaction with contemporary society I warmly recommend this volume for study and pray that it will renew our passion for the Gospel and compassion for people'.

  7. Mission Today and Tomorrow

    Mission Today and Tomorrow

    Kirsteen Kim and Andrew Anderson The centenary of the historic and influential World Missionary Conference held in Edinburgh 1910 presented a unique opportunity for the whole church worldwide to come together in celebration, reflection and recommitment to witnessing to Christ today. Edinburgh 2010 also engaged in serious study and reflection on the current state of world mission and the challenges facing all those who seek to witness Christ today. The results of this research was presented and debated within the context of Christian fellowship and worship at the conference in June 2010. This record of that conference is intended to give the background to that Call, to share the spirit of the conference, and to stimulate informed and focused participation in God’s mission in Christ for the world’s salvation.

    Holistic Mission: God’s Plan for God’s People

    Brian E. Woolnough and Wonsuk Ma This book reaffirms that to be true to the bible, to follow the example of Jesus, the church must address the whole person in all their needs.

It takes a global, eclectic approach, with 19 writers, church leaders, academics and practitioners and addresses crictally and honestly one of the most exciting, challenging, and important issues facing the church today. To be part of God's Plan for God's People, the church must take holistic mission to the world. Learn More

  9. Mission Continues: Global Impulses for the 21st Century

    Mission Continues: Global Impulses for the 21st Century

    Claudia Wahrisch-Oblau and Fidon Mwombeki In May 2009, 35 theologians from Asia, Africa and Europe met in Wuppertal, Germany, for a consultation on mission theology organized by the United Evangelical Mission: Communion of 35 Churches in Three Continents. The aim was to participate in the 100th anniversary of the Edinburgh conference through a study process and reflect on the challenges for mission in the 21st century. This book brings together papers written by experienced practitioners from around the world. The conference organisers decided not to invite renowned experts, but to have an open invitation through a call for papers, so that practicing mission experts not yet well-known would have an opportunity to share their expertise. They decided not to predetermine a theme or motto for the consultation but to allow various themes on mission to emerge from the papers themselves and thus to allow wide-ranging discussions. Indeed the papers were varied; each drew strong reactions, lively and even controversial debates. The conference delegates were able to discover common concerns transcending very different contexts. The collection of papers in this book has been taken from papers delivered at the Wuppertal consultation. In some cases, short responses by one or two of the consultation participants were added to highlight the discussions that followed. The very varied voices collected in this anthology nevertheless have much in common: Even where they are most theoretical it is obvious that all contributors come from missionary practice and bring in their contextual experiences.
