Product Description

What is Christian mission in a world post-everything? This volume is a masterful rethinking of the problems and prospect of the Christian vocation to mission in light of the whole checkered legacy---religious, philosophical, colonial, and economic---of modernity.

Kirk draws on his considerable experience of worldwide mission and his expertise in modern Western thought to throw light on all the most burning questions, such as:

  • What kinds of mission initiatives are appropriate today?
  • Is it legitimate to invite adherents of different religions to follow Jesus?
  • What role have Christians played in advocating violence, and also in being agents of peace and reconciliation?

J. Andrew Kirk has spent his life in theological education in South America and the United Kingdom. He has traveled widely on all continents and retired in 2002 from his teaching position at the University of Birmingham, England. Among his thirteen books is What Is Mission? Theological Explorations.
