Full Product Description
David J. Bosch (1929-1992) one of the world's foremost theologians of Christian vocation and mission, examines 2000 years of history and tradition to show how, historically, five paradigms have encapsulated the Christian understanding of how God saves, and what human beings should do in response.
Bosch then outlines the key characteristics of an emerging "postmodern" paradigm dialectically linking salvation's transcendent and immanent dimensions. As he writes, "Mission is, quite simply, the participation of Christians in the liberating mission of Jesus . . . . It is good news of God's love, incarnated in the witness of a community, for the sake of the world."
"Will surely be the indispensable foundation for the teaching of mission for years to come."--Lesslie Newbigin
"Well-informed and courageous . . . the first to implement paradigm theory for the understanding of mission."--Hans Kung
"The most comprehensive and thorough study of the Christian mission done in this generation, if not this century."--Alan Neely
