Product Description

From the publisher: Changing Frontiers of Mission reflects on the history of missions and seeks to discern its path for the future. Ever since Jesus' time, mission must precede the church. The renewal of the church is linked to recovery of this priority of mission. Unlike in the past, where the "frontier" was a geographical location, the future "frontier" is symbolizd by outward movement, away from the status quo, and toward new challenges, growth and opportunities. Shenk organizes the book in sections dealing with: (1) theological frontiers; (2) frontiers in theory and practice; (3) contemporary Western culture as a missiological frontier; and (4) discerning changes in the historical patterns of carrying on mission. With Christians in every part of the world, the "frontier" needs to be flexible and responsive to the socio-political changes in our world. Outdated geographical boundaries of "frontier" may be the greatest obstacle to missions in our world today.
