:Globalization is speeding up our world, extending our relationships globally and bringing us closer together in positive and not-so-positive ways. The church and many Christians, however, remain largely unaware of its seductive power, resulting in a failure of vision for mission in today's world. This up-to-date resource by a veteran leader in global development work with World Vision orients readers to the history of globalization and to a Christian theological perspective on it, explores concrete realities by focusing on global poverty, and helps readers reimagine Christian mission in ways that announce the truly good news of Christ and God's kingdom. Diagrams and sidebars that incorporate the voices of global partners are included. This is the second book in a new series that reframes missiological themes and studies for students using/featuring the common theme of mission as partnership with Christians.
Bryant L. Myers is Vice-President for International Program Strategy at World Vision International, author of the best-selling books The Changing Shape of World Mission, Walking with the Poor: Principles and Practices of Transformational Development and The New Context of World Mission, draws on the most current resources available, including the latest editions of Operation World and World Christian Encyclopedia, to bring the most meaningful picture of where mission and work amongst the poor is heading in the next century and why.
