Hope for the world represents a new resolve and commitment to the global context for the ministry of the church. Missions, evangelism, and the theological education too often seem ill prepared to face the hopelessness commonly shared by both the northern and southern hemispheres. The older patterns of ministry, still unwittingly triumphalistic, cannot cope with the deeply rooted spiritual crisis that is manifested economically, plitically and militarily in the globalization of wealth.

In this book, experienced mission workers, who are now among the leading scholars in their field, provide provacative and challenging perspectives on the new understandings of mission tha thave evolved over the last few decades. Based on their personal experiences, these well-respected Presbyterian professors of evangelism and mission share their views about how these new understandings have influenced the teaching of mission at Presbyterian seminaries. The authors discuss the way Christian practices shape mission, the issue of transformation in mission work, and the relationship of Christianity to other religions. Their stories illustrate a growing awareness of the scope and depth of God's mission in the world today and recognition that God has raised up Crhistians worldwide to help fulfill that mission.

Many historians of religion now recognize that Christianity is a global faith whose most vibrant expression and growth are found today in the non-Western world. But no one explores this reality and its implications for modern life with the depth of learning and personal insight of Lamin Sanneh. This book is unique in the literature of world Christianity, not least for its novel structure. Sanneh’s engaging narrative takes the form of a self-interview in which he asks questions about the cross-cultural expansion of Christianity and provides insightful answers and meaningful predictions about the future. This technique also allows Sanneh to track developments in world Christianity even while giving attention to the responses and involvement of indigenous peoples around the world.

Sanneh’s own background and lifelong involvement with non-Western cultures bring a richness of perspective not found in any other book on world Christianity. For example, Sanneh highlights what is distinctive about Christianity as a world religion, and he offers a timely comparison of Christianity with Islam’s own missionary tradition. The book also gives pride of place to the recipients of the Christian message rather than to the missionaries themselves. Indeed, Sanneh argues here that the gospel is not owned by the West and that the future of the tradition lies in its “world” character. Literate, relevant, and highly original, Whose Religion Is Christianity? presents a stimulating new outlook on faith and culture that will interest a wide range of readers.
