Dictionary of Mission Theology

Dictionary of Mission Theology

Evangelical Foundations.
In recent decades mission theology
has quietly undergone a remarkable reorientation. No longer the exclusive
enterprise of the West, like the global Internet, Christian mission has become
decentralized. While places such as Pasadena, Wheaton and New Haven still
represent important nodes of mission thinking in the United States, these are
now part of a network that includes locations such as Nairobi, Manila and São
Paulo. Christian mission now radiates from everywhere to everywhere, and
mission theology has been enriched and shaped by this new reality.
Dictionary of Mission Theology is the first reference book of its kind
to reflect this new world of mission. With the majority of its 160-plus
articles written by contributors from the Majority World, it reflects a variety
of global contexts. The missiological implications of central Christian
doctrines are explored, and a range of new perspectives are highlighted and
weighed. Along with affirmations of time-tested foundations, one will find here
original contributions to missiological thought, challenges to traditional
views of mission, and an invitation to creatively integrate evangelism,
liberation, healing and justice.
More than simply a look-it-up reference
work, the Dictionary of Mission Theology is a handbook for church
leaders and missionaries, and a textbook for teachers and students of mission
theology worldwide. In every context where Christian mission is learned and
practiced, the Dictionary of Mission Theology will set a new benchmark
for mission theology. (= 0830824537 / 9780830824533)

'Almost all
sections of the church today profess to make mission a priority, but the
meaning and objectives of Christian mission are hotly contested as never
before. Evangelicals have been distinctive in their insistence that the call to
conversion to Christ lies at the heart of mission, but too often their mission
practice has been shaped more by unthinking cultural assumptions or the norms
of the business world than by profound theological reflection. The Dictionary
of Mission Theology will be strategic in impelling evangelicals towards a
deeper, broader and more authentically biblical understanding of the mission of
God. It will also be an invaluable resource for Christians of many traditions
who are concerned to root their approach to mission in the witness of
Scripture.' - Brian Stanley
'I am delighted to welcome the
long-awaited birth of this unique publication. John Corrie and team give the
worldwide church a robust gift. Its unique contribution comes from its focus
and its writers - a global vision for its topics and a global team of gifted
writers. Such resources announce the full arrival of two new 'selfs' -
self-missiologizing and self-theologizing - to the original three -
self-governing, self-supporting and self-propagating. This carefully crafted
resource will enrich the church and its leadership in both the Global North and
Global South, whether in academia, the local church, mission structures or as
grass roots mission practitioners.' - William D. Taylor
