Christian Mission in the Modern World (And Expanded)

Christopher J H Wright (Ed)John Stott

$16.99

Paperback

First published forty years ago, this classic statement of Christian mission by John Stott has been expanded by Christopher J H Wright. Stott addresses skewed concepts of what missions entails, and sets out a thoroughly biblical case for the holistic integration of evangelism with social action.




Newly updated and expanded by Christopher J. H. Wright, Christian Mission in the Modern World provides a biblically based approach to mission that addresses both spiritual and physical needs.

The mission of the church has been defined in two almost exclusive ways. On the one hand are those who say the church must focus on evangelism and discipleship alone. On the other hand are those who advocate concentrating almost solely on societal reform. In this classic book, first published four decades ago, John Stott shows that Christian mission must encompass both evangelism and social action. He begins with careful definitions of five key terms--mission, evangelism, dialogue, salvation, and conversion. Then, through a thorough biblical exploration of these concepts, Stott provides a model for ministry to people's spiritual and physical needs alike. Ultimately, Stott points to the example of Jesus, who modelled both the Great Commission of proclamation and the Great Commandment of love and service. This balanced, holistic approach to mission points the way forward for the work of the church in the world.
