Item Description...
"From East and West is a fascinating interplay of a person's own spiritual and theological journey to rethink Christian mission for today with an incisive analysis of the history of missions and mission theology. Preman Niles has successfully pulled together his long and rich experience in the global and Asian ecumenical movements and his tenure as General Secretary of the Council for World Mission into a volume on mission that is refreshingly readable, penetrating in its analysis, enriching in its insights. This is a 'must read' for those reflecting on mission for our day."

Publishers Description
Taking into account that all religions are missionary, Niles challenges Christians to rethink mission in a way that reflects the realities of our present world, including the reality of religious plurality. He looks at three understandings of people from the point of view of Christian mission and how the three ought to interact. Using three Greek words to distinguish and relate these concepts of people, Niles explores the ways in which the laos (the Christian community) could relate with reciprocity to the ochlos (the multitudes, the marginalized, and deprived) and to the ethne (religio-cultural entities) so that the laos could be a blessing to the peoples. He argues that only churches that manage these relationships in a reconciled and creative way within themselves can respond to this new missionary challenge.
