"Contemporary Evangelicals maintain that Christ is still the center of their mission and message. But will Christ be explicitly proclaimed as the indispensable Center when faced with an increasingly pluralistic world? . . . That is the concern expressed in this volume. It is only as we evaluate our message and methods by the degree to which they reflect and lead to Christ that we can remain true to the One who calls and sends us."
- Michael Pocock, from the Foreword.
"This volume of the annual EMS series offers answers to these questions and more. Is Jesus really the only way? What is unique about Christ and missions? How can a new understanding of Jesus Christ bridge the gap between modern positivism and post-modern relativism? . . . Can a fresh encounter with Christ transform the nominal Christian world of Europe and the West? . . . Can we learn from the model of Jesus how to be more effective missions workers? The answers lie in the clear and relevant communication of the centrality of Jesus Christ."
- Mike Barnett, from the Introduction.
