Product Description

"Classic Texts in Mission and World Christianity", a unique sourcebook on the history and mission of the Church. Nearly 200 selections covering the 2 millennia of the Christian are represented, including both classic and contemporary voices of persons in mission - women and men - from Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Europe - and key texts for understanding the mission of Christ, the vocation of the Church, and the nature of Christianity. Following the outline of David Bosch's monumental "Transforming mission", "Classic Texts" offers its readers the full texts cited throughout that best-seller, as well as dozens of additional primary sources from every era and every part of the world. From the seventh century abbess Bertilla of Chelles (who directed both men and women missionaries in England) to the Nestorian Monument detailing struggles with issues of contextualization in 8th century China, to David Livingstone's oft-cited espousal of civilization, commerce, and Christianity (seldom quoted in its entirety), Classic texts provides a depth and breadth of resources.
