Book Description: If your shelves are overloaded with books on how to do mission, create some space to engage with this book. No to-do lists. No win-win strategies. Instead this discerning book reflects on the inner resources and attitude of mind required to engage in mission in a post-modern, pluralist society. Combining real-life case studies with vital lessons from her own personal journey, Susan Hope explores what happens to us on the inside when we embark on mission. This gently provocative book will help us to listen to the Holy Spirit and the cultures in which we find ourselves. This book encourages the reader to discover a spirituality that envigorates and revives enthusiasm and personal vision for mission.

Book Description: "Lausanne '74 inspired evangelicals around the world to take seriously the full implications of the Gospel for mission. This was especially true of a worldwide network of radical evangelical mission theologians and practitioners, whose post-Lausanne reflections found harbour in the notion of "Mission as Transformation". This missiology integrated evangelism and social concern like no other, and it lifted up theological voices coming from the Two Thirds World to places of prominence. This book documents the definitive gatherings, theological tensions, and social forces within and without evangelicalism that led up to Mission as Transformation. And it does so through a global-local grid that points the way toward greater holistic mission in the 21st century."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Description: Leading Voices from across Christian Traditions Discuss the Mission of the Church What is the mission of the church? Every seminarian and church leader must wrestle with that question. No matter what designation a church uses to describe itself, it must also think critically about why it exists and what it should be doing. In this book, five leading voices representing a range of Christian traditions engage in an enlightening conversation as they present and compare their perspectives on the mission of the church. Each contributor offers his or her view and responds to the other four views. Contributors include Stephen B. Bevans, Darrell L. Guder, Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Edward Rommen, and Ed Stetzer. The book's format is ideal for classroom use and will also benefit pastors and church leaders.

Book Description: The title of the book is key to its intent. First, it is written "for all people," who now find themselves living in a postmodern, globalized world. Second, it reflects the nature of Christianity, which, from its very inception, has understood itself as a universal faith guided by Jesus' Great Commission. Third, the title reflects the character and career of Viggo Mortensen, a Christian leader and teacher who has always tried to be a theologian for all people, consciously open to the particularity and challenges of the times. Thus, in attempting to build bridges between different cultures, in being open to the realities of the world and responsible in relation to the victims of the day's order, and in keeping alive the idea of and working for a united humanity, this volume not only represents fitting tribute to Mortensen, a highly respected friend and theologian, but also suggests new ways of shaping a world for all people.

Book Description: Transforming mission of the late David J Bosch of South Africa, is an excellent guide to study the biblical view on mission, the historical development of the mission concepts, and the variety of contemporary missionary views. This opus magnum not only bridges gaps between Roman Catholics and Protestants, as well as between Ecumenicals and Evangelicals, but also stimulates to do more in depth missiological studies and to develop more suitable missionary activities. Jan AB Jongeneel, Professor of Missiology, Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
