Studies in Mission

The Regnum Studies in Mission series is born out of the lived experience of Christians and Christian communities-in-mission, especially in the fast growing churches among the poor of the world. These churches have more to tell than just stories of growth. Their work is making a significant impact in shaping their cultures in the power and image of Christ. Through Regnum, these practitioners are expressing the reality of the Christian faith as it is manifested in their societies and making the work of God known, globally. Titles in the Regnum Studies in Mission series are the fruit of rigorous research to the highest international standards. They demonstrate authentic Christian engagement that has led to the transformation of people and societies. These books are designed to impact the world, as the formation of Christian theology, missiology, and practice in the twenty-first century will depend to a great extent on the active participation of growing churches. Through Regnum, these ministries will be able to contribute biblically faithful and culturally appropriate expressions of Christian practice.

  2. Discipling the Church: A Study of Christian Education in the Anglican Church of Myanmar

    Discipling the Church: A Study of Christian Education in the Anglican Church of Myanmar

    Christian education is an essential component of church development and transformation. Due to the low level of Christian education among lay mission workers the growth of the Diocese of Yangon was almost stagnant since 1877. Such low level of Christian education in the diocese is mainly due to the failure of the successive bishops in not training lay workers and lay leaders since the formation of the diocese. They may have worked hard for the mission but made very little provision for the development of lay ministry. Therefore, to move the diocese one step forward, all bishops and clergy need to understand the importance of training lay workers, catechists and the heads of all the lay departments. Learn More

  3. Diakonia in a Gender Perspective

    Diakonia in a Gender Perspective

    Gender perspectives play a core role when it comes to both the theory and practice of diakonia. This is the second book on diakonia published by Regnum Books. It follows up Diakonia as Christian Social Practice: An Introduction (2014). Many of the authors belong to VID Specialized University in Norway (Campuses in Oslo, Stavanger and Bergen). They are concerned about the role gender plays within the theory and practice of diakonia. Most of them have experience as diaconal practitioners. The academic context of this publication is thus not gender studies per se, but an interdisciplinary approach where diaconal theory is deepened through the lenses of a gender perspective, and where examples and case studies are provided in order to exemplify the impact of a gender perspective on diaconal theory and practice. The book is a joint venture between VID, Digni and the publisher Regnum Books in Oxford. Learn More

  4. The Emergence of Christ Groups in India: The Case of Karnatake State

    The Emergence of Christ Groups in India: The Case of Karnatake State

    The book studies the emergence of Christ Groups against the background of western individualistic approaches in the Indian relational context. These small worship groups were formed and grew as the conversion of families began as a result of the literature distribution that was meant to reach the individuals. The Christ Groups allow the cultural response to develop at its own pace in contrast to the mass movement approach of church growth through homogenous units towards complete social and cultural change, focusing on social responsibility and social justice.

    Ministry Across Cultures: Sharing the Christian Faith in Asia

    At a time when more and more Christians are coming across people from different cultural backgrounds this book addresses a number of important questions.

What impact does culture have on the local church? This book seeks to address and answer these questions – it is relevant to all Christians including those who are members or leaders of local churches who want to reach out to their neighbours and encourage them to be part of the church as well. It would also be useful for those about to engage in mission in a new culture. Learn More

  7. A Theory of Lay Ministry Praxis Ministry

    A Theory of Lay Ministry Praxis: Kenya Assemblies of God Denomination Nairobi County

    How can Christian church leaders best empower lay Christians to serve one another in acts of ministry in their respective local churches? High quality lay mutual ministry is judged to be the priority as a church seeks to undertake convincing evangelism. The author embraces the empirical and biblical perspective that, if you believe in the Body of Christ, you must demonstrate it in concrete reality. In this research, Christ’s words, that if Christians love one another the world will know that they are Disciples of Christ, is empirically proven as a fundamental principle of the health of the church and its growth. The identity of any local church, the various competencies involved in church leadership, the quality of lay training provided, gift-based ministries and the socio-cultural contexts of a local church – these are, in this order, the determining factors for the effectiveness of lay mutual ministry. They form a critical model of lay ministry that all churches, from all denominations, theological persuasions, geographical locations and socio-cultural contexts from all over the world, will find useful. No church can afford to ignore them. Learn More

  8. The Contextualisation of Leadership in Paul

    The Contextualisation of Leadership in Paul

    Leadership and its exercise in different cultures is a major issue in today’s church. To what extent is it legitimate to use the leadership patterns of the local context and can these be challenged? This book examines Paul's ministry and writings to see how the early church contextualised leadership and to identify some of the theological principles which influenced the process. The outworking of these in the leadership of the English-speaking Methodist churches in Peninsular Malaysia is examined. Learn More

  10. Jesus and the Cross: Reflections of Christians from Islamic Contexts

    Jesus and the Cross: Reflections of Christians from Islamic Contexts

    The papers in this volume are organised in three parts: scriptural, contextual and theological. The central question being addressed is: how do Christians living in contexts where Islam is a majority or minority religion, experience, express or think of the cross? This is therefore an exercise in listening. As the contexts from where these engagements arise are varied, the papers in drawing scriptural, contextual and theological reflections offer a cross-section of Christian thinking about Jesus and the cross.
