Publisher's Description

How do we sing the Lord's song in “the strange land” that is now the 21st century? How do we take appropriate account of where and when we are without compromising the “old, old story of Jesus and his love?” Harvie Conn pressed these questions while teaching missions for twenty-six years, and this volume, written by former colleagues in his honor, does the same. Contributing chapters are: Paul Hiebert, Raymond Bakke, Roger Greenway, Samuel Escobar, Charles Kraft, William Dyrness, and others. The volume begins with a previously unpublished essay by Conn on missions and theology. In “The Urban Face of Missions,” writes Samuel Logan, “voices from around the world call all of us to think again about what the unchanging word of Scripture really does say about the changing world in which we live.”
