Encountering Theology of Mission

Encountering Theology of Mission

Biblical Foundations, Historical Developments, and Contemporary
Issues.
This fresh, comprehensive text fills a need for an
up-to-date theology of mission. The authors, who are leading mission experts,
discuss biblical theology of mission, provide historical overviews of the
development of various viewpoints, and address current theological issues in
global mission from an evangelical perspective. They offer creative approaches
to answering some of the most pressing questions in theology of mission and
missionary practice today.
 
Readable yet thorough, Encountering
Theology of Mission integrates current views of the kingdom of God and holistic
mission with traditional views of evangelism and church planting. It also
brings theology of mission into conversation with ecclesiology. Topics covered
include contextualization, the missionary vocation, church and mission, and
theology of religions. Sidebars and case studies enable readers to see how
theology of mission touches real-life mission practice. This unique text will
benefit mission leaders, missionaries, and professors and
students.
'Good maps can be hard to find. Thankfully Craig Ott,
Stephen Strauss, and Timothy Tennent have drawn up a comprehensive yet
easy-to-navigate guide to the complex terrain of theologizing about Christian
mission. It is hard to imagine a more careful presentation of this vast
subject.' - J. Nelson
Jennings
