This is perhaps one of the most enjoyable academic books I have read in a very long while. It’s a well curated collection of essays, from a range of scholars, looking at mission through the contexts of Christology, Eschatology, Ecclesiology, Soteriology, Anthropology and finally Culture.
But the emphasis and lens is on the prophetic dialogue and catalyst intrinsic in each of these areas for mission to be communal, active and central. We have here a book that somehow blends the lines between academic and essentially practice based faith. These essays are incredibly easy to read and find so many points of reference into the possibility of everyday faith and mission that cannot but help missiologists and missiological churches. The only downside is that , because this book is an academic book, it comes with a high price tag that will sadly put it out of the reach of many people who would seriously gain real enjoyment and benefit from it.
