What is Mission?

J Andrew Kirk

$75.00

Paperback
Also Available In
An enlightening introduction to the concept of Christian mission and its complex theological and practical issues.

- Publisher "How should today's Church shape its response to the Gospel? How can we set about "making disciples of all nations" in our post-Christian, multifaith world? What does mission mean in our times?" "Here is a book that addresses these issues - and many more - with honesty and openness. It strips mission of its old associations with colonialism and militarism. It looks anew at the underlying theology, reminding us that our task is God's mission, not a human construct. It explores key aspects of contemporary mission, from the familiar (such as the relation of mission to evangelism, and to people of other faiths) to the unusual and thought-provoking (such as mission and the environment, justice for the poor, and the overcoming of violence)." "Students of mission and Christians who wish to engage with today's world, to integrate faith and life, will find here an inclusive, comprehensive, and lucid presentation of all the relevant discussions."--BOOK JACKET.
