In this book, experienced mission workers, who are now among the leading scholars in their field, provide provacative and challenging perspectives on the new understandings of mission tha thave evolved over the last few decades. Based on their personal experiences, these well-respected Presbyterian professors of evangelism and mission share their views about how these new understandings have influenced the teaching of mission at Presbyterian seminaries. The authors discuss the way Christian practices shape mission, the issue of transformation in mission work, and the relationship of Christianity to other religions. Their stories illustrate a growing awareness of the scope and depth of God's mission in the world today and recognition that God has raised up Crhistians worldwide to help fulfill that mission.
This book is a collection of eleven essays about the practice of mission. The first section, titled "Feet First," is about the way in which Christian practices, many of them taken for granted, shape mission. The next section deals with the issue of transformation in mission work and the related concerns of mutuality, solidarity, and marginality. The third section takes up the situation of the relation of Christianity to other religions. Finally, the last four essays take up spirituality as an inward and outward event, doing mission in the context of North America, and finally the development of a new theological identity based on the image of God as a missionary God.
