Edinburgh Centenary Series

The titles of the Edinburgh Centenary Series are divided into two categories: (1) the three official titles of Edinburgh 2010, and (2) publications of various study groups, including the Edinburgh 2010 main study groups, transversal, regional and different confessional study groups. These publications reflect the ethos of Edinburgh 2010 and will make a significant contribution to its study process. It should be clear that material published in this series will inevitably reflect a diverse range of views and positions. These will not necessarily represent those of the series’ editors or of the Edinburgh 2010 General Council, but in publishing them the leadership of Edinburgh 2010 hope to encourage conversation between Christians and collaboration in mission. All the series volumes are commended for study and reflection by both churches and academies.

  2. 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.

  3. Witnessing to Christ Today

    Witnessing to Christ Today

    Daryl Balia and Kirsteen Kim The Edinburgh 2010 study process is unique.

  4. Mission Then and Now

    Mission Then and Now

    David A. Kerr and Kenneth R. Ross No one can hope to fully understand the modern Christian missionary movement without engaging substantially with the World Missionary Conference, held at Edinburgh in 1910. As the centenary of the Conference approaches, the time is ripe to examine its meaning in light of the past century and the questions facing Christian witness today. This book is the first to systematically examine the eight Commissions which reported to Edinburgh 1910 and gave the conference much of its substance and enduring value. It will deepen and extend the reflection being stimulated by the upcoming centenary and will kindle the missionary imagination for 2010 and beyond. Learn More

  5. Mission in Central and Eastern Europe: Realities, Perspectives, Trends

    Mission in Central and Eastern Europe: Realities, Perspectives, Trends

    Corneliu Constantineanu, Marcel V Macelaru, Anne-Marie Kool and Mihai Himcinschi Central and Eastern Europe is one of the areas of the world that has undergone profound transformations during the 100 years delimited by the two Edinburgh gatherings that inspired the Regnum Edinburgh Centenary Series. It is the place in which Marxist ideology gave birth to the Communist hegemony that has impacted the European arena for over 50 years. But this is also the place where Christian churches experienced God’s grace and provision, and even unexpected flourishing in some quarters. The present volume brings together significant contributions from over thirty theologians, missiologists and practitioners from this part of the world. The articles explore the complex missiological thinking and praxis of Central and Eastern Europe, highlight concrete missiological endeavours and pointing to the challenges and opportunities for mission in this part of the world. It also included relevant missiological documents that emerged in the area within the past 25 years. Learn More

  6. Mission and Power: History, Relevance and Perils

    Mission and Power: History, Relevance and Perils

    Atola Longkumar, Jorgen Skov Sorensen and Michael Biehl Mission cannot ignore its engagement with power. Christian mission is unavoidably located within matrices of power structures: religion, culture, colonial power, economic and gender. It is not only in the missionary movement largely emanating from the West that Christian mission is linked to structure and power. The Christian communities of today also present significant images, practices, expressions, and sometimes exploitations of power. This volume explores the notion of power in relation to Christian mission and critically engages questions such as: What notions of power have informed mission? How have power structures been negotiated between Christian mission and local culture/religions? Which of these manifestations of power are disturbing and counter the values of the Gospel?

  7. The Reshaping of Mission in Latin America

    The Reshaping of Mission in Latin America

    This work describes the re-shaping of mission in Latin America in recent years. It covers a broad spectrum of Christian movements that coexist in the area. The book includes themes related to theology of mission, ecclesiology, history, social action and leadership. It is designed to serve as a guide to understand different Christian trends in contemporary Latin America. Most contributors belong to the young generation of Christian leaders emerging in different locations of the region - from the Central America, the Caribbean, and South and North America. They are sensitive to the differences that are part of denominational identity. This work is unique and calls for a meaningful and mature dialogue among Christians in the continent. Latin America is still a continent of hope where Christianity continues to grow in the midst of poverty, social and political struggles. Christian workers are seeking for unity and mutual understanding. Promising young leaders are emerging and bringing innovation, vision and dynamism to the Latin American church in every country.

  8. Evangelism and Diakonia in Context

    Evangelism and Diakonia in Context

    Rose Dowsett, Isabel Phiri, Dawit Olika Terfassa and Hwa Yung In a world of uncertainty, this volume advocates for a humble confidence in the reconciling work of the Community-of-Love. Yet further, by bringing together perspectives and experiences of Christians from across the theological and cultural spectrum, it models the reconciling power of the whole gospel and invites readers to share the good news.

  9. Creation Care in Christian Mission

    Creation Care in Christian Mission

    As the world comes to terms with the human-caused destruction of God’s sacred creation, whether Global Christianity will celebrate a bi-centennial Edinburgh 2110 becomes a real question. Yet, as Creation Care in Christian Mission shows, the mounting and life-threatening ecological crisis is at the heart of the mission of God. The volume’s contributing authors represent a wide range of Christian traditions and geographical regions on which they draw to initiate dialogue on creation care within the wider global Christian community. They explore hard questions relative to climate change, population growth, pollution, poverty, sustainability, economic justice, deforestation, gender, and land issues. Written with academics, missionary and development agencies, and ordinary Christians in mind, this work presents a global unified spiritual and ethical voice on Creation care. The diversity of contributors from established scholars and religious leaders makes this work a unique and critical resource for understanding human responsibility toward God’s creation. The book offers hope to all Christians, for Christian mission can positively aid ecological responsibilities and actions. Learn More

  10. Witnessing to Christ in North East India

    Witnessing to Christ in North East India

    Marina Ngursangzeli and Michael Biehl The Church in India has a far closer connection to Edinburgh 1910, as F S Downs points out, that one of the Indian delegates was Rev Thankan Sangma, a Garo. This little known fact is illustrative of how, on one hand, the Church in North East India is ignorant of this legacy and continues to view ecumenism poorly and suspiciously, while on the other hand the challenges faced by the Church in the region and the social, economic and political milieu it is placed in, have been largely ignored, neglected, or worse still, identified with what is generally portrayed as what the Church in India is... The book's contents deal with the nine study themes of Edinburgh 2010, spanning the ethnic, tribal and denominational diversity of the region. Learn More
