Edinburgh Centenary

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.

  1. Ecumenical Missiology: Changing Landscapes and New Conceptions of Mission

    Ecumenical Missiology: Changing Landscapes and New Conceptions of Mission

    Kenneth R. Ross , Jooseop Keum, Kyriaki Avtzi and Roderick R. Hewitt We are together on our Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace. One very significant dimension of this ecumenical movement together in faith, is our movement together in mission, guided by the document Together Towards Life. It has been developed through a unique global and ecumenical process, and affirmed and received by the 10th WCC Assembly in Busan, Korea. On our way forward in our local, regional and global contexts, we need to continue to share and to receive, to study and to serve, to work and to pray, as we participate in the mission of God. This book is an invaluable resource for the journey ahead. Olav Fykse Tveit, General Secretary, World Council of Churches Learn More

    Mission Spirituality and Authentic Discipleship

    Wonsuk Ma and Kenneth R. Ross This book argues for the primacy of spirituality in the practice of mission.

  5. Life-Widening Mission: Global Anglican Perspectives

    Life-Widening Mission: Global Anglican Perspectives

    Each of the young Anglicans who write on the Five Marks of Mission were at the Edinburgh 2010 Conference in June of that year. The articles were then reworked in Toronto a year later, so what you read here is the fruit of much labour, writing, and rewriting. These articles are also open and honest reflections from a range of young Anglicans in a variety of contexts. Here we see a glimpse of the strengths and struggles of the Anglican Communion. There is no space for complacency. The title of the book created much discussion. I still remember the excitement we all felt when our first contributor, from Hong Kong, explained to us the meaning of the Chinese character for 'life-widening'. We all thought that this captured that this captured the essence of how we long for mission not only to be but also to be experienced; as life-widening. Our God is a God of love, life and spaciousness so we long for the missio Dei to be practised and received as life-widening. We hope that this book may disturb, challenge, comfort and enrich your life. We think it will disturb and challenge as you read of the hardship and injustices experienced in many parts of God's world and creation today. We think it will comfort and enrich as you read stories of change and renewal, and as you meet the writers through their writings. Learn More

  6. A Learning Missional Church: Reflections from Young Missiologists

    A Learning Missional Church: Reflections from Young Missiologists

    Beate Fagerli, Knud Jorgensen, Rolv Olsen and Rolv Olsen Cross-cultural mission has always been a primary learning experience for the church. It pulls us out of a mono-cultural understanding and helps us discover a legitimate theological pluralism which opens up for new perspectives in the Gospel. translating the Gospel into new languages and cultures is a human and divine means of making us learn new 'incarnations' of the Good News. This book is compiled by contributions from young missiolgists from different parts of the world. It is written from the perspective of youth to be a fresh breath of air into more traditional mission thinking and mission paradigms. The flavour of this fresh breath of air, coming from the younger generation, is "learning from others and from one another": How may traditional sending churches and organizations see themselves as receivers? How may we bring experiences from outside into our own context? What may we learn across geographical borders - North learning from South, South learning North, South learning from South? What can we learn from one another in a process of reciprocity? 'Mission as learning' is not just welcome addendum to mission, but a necessity if we want God's Spirit to reveal to us some new dimensions of Jesus as he comes to be known and loved in "every nation, tribe, people and language." A church that aims at being A Learning Missional Church sorely needs Reflections from Young Missiologists, as this book is entitled. The reflections are valuable because of the content and substance, because they deal with relevant issues; they are valuable because they depict the church as a 'learning organisation' cross-culturally; and they are valuable because they raise signs of youthful willingness to challenge and change. In this way these reflections may show the way towards Edinburgh 2110. Learn More

  7. Witnessing to Christ Today

    Witnessing to Christ Today

    The Edinburgh 2010 study process is unique. Set up to mark the centenary of the World Missionary Conference, Edinburgh 1910, it is a project of churches worldwide which is multi-regional, cross-denominational and poly-centric. It involves all the major Christian world bodies, including Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Evangelical and Pentecostal, with study events taking place in every continent that involve hundreds of Christians in different parts of the world. This volume, the second in the Edinburgh 2010 series, includes reports of the nine main study groups on different themes which will be used as the raw material for discussions at the conference in June 2010. Their collaborative work brings together perspectives that are as inclusive as possible of contemporary world Christianity and helps readers to grasp what it means to be ‘witnessing to Christ today’.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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 particularly 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.
