Mission After Christendom
Full Product Description
In 1910 Protestant missionaries from around the world gathered to explore the role of Christian missions in the twentieth century. In this collection, leading missiologists use the one hundred year anniversary of the Edinburgh conference as an occasion to reflect on the practice of Christian mission in today's context: a context marked by globalization, migration, ecological crisis, and religiously motivated violence. The contributors explore the meaning of Christian mission, the contemporary context for mission work, and new forms in which the church has engaged-and should engage-in its missionary task. From these essays, a vision of twenty-first-century mission begins to emerge-one that is aware of issues of race, gender, border spaces, migration, and ecology. This renewed vision gives strength to the future of shared Christian ministry across nations and traditions.
Mission After Christendom was published by Westminster John Knox in April 2010 and is our 44996th best seller. The ISBN for Mission After Christendom is 9780664234652.

Mission After ChristendomJim Currin, via The Good Book Stall
Mission after Christendom provides a very illuminating update on mission theology and praxis a centenary on from the 1910 World Missionary Conference. Here is a collection of essays looking at mission now being 'bottom up' and about ‘dialogue', and 'from everywhere to everywhere', with such contemporary topics considered as globalisation, the environment and migration. This is more than welcome. It is a valuable contribution to the study of mission and world Christianity today. The contributors come from a wide academic spectrum and the topics tackled are from a practical as well as theological and biblical base - here is an insight into various parts of the world and the 'emergent themes in contemporary mission': it may be broad in its application, but important to address none the less.
