Examining the ambiguities that lie behind the word "mission", this text ^explores its different meanings and attempts to bridge the gap between ^them. In doing so, the book addresses issues faced by missionaries and ^missionary societies in an unequal world of cultural and religious ^pluralism.
-Publisher

At the heart of this book lies an ambiguity about the word "mission". At ^times the word has a rather restricted meaning where it refers mainly to ^work "on the foreign missions". At other times, or for other people, its ^meaning is much more general: it refers not so much to a particular kind ^of work, as to a sense of being called upon to undertake some important ^enterprise, with a corresponding attitude of willingness to break new ^ground and to work on a new frontier, outside the established structures. ^The aim of this book is to bridge the gap between these two understandings ^of the word mission.^The book acknowledges that the concept of mission has changed ^significantly and that dialogue with other religions and spiritual ^outlooks is not opposed to mission, but is a central aspect of it. The ^book also examines key entry-points into the whole notion of mission, ^including the processes of evangelization and inculturation. Throughout ^the book, important issues that face missionaries and missionary societies ^are teased out. These include the enormous social and economic problems ^faced by many countries, as well as cultural and religious pluralism.
