Publisher's Description

Theology disconnected from mission is not Christian theology at all. The pastors, professors, and missionaries writing Theology and Practice of Mission provide a clear biblical-theological framework for understanding the church's mission to the nations. Toward that goal, the book holds three major sections: God's mission, the church's mission, and the church's mission to the nations. 

Part one explores the canon of Christian Scripture from narrative and systematic angles, explaining how the mission of God-to redeem a people who will be a kingdom of priests to the praise of his glory, bear witness to his gospel, advance his church, and dwell with him forever on a new heaven and earth-is communicated in the Bible's four movements: Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration. 

Part two sees the mission of God's people in the light of God's mission, emphasizing not only preaching and church planting but also gospel witness in every dimension of human culture-glorifying God in family, church, work, community, through the arts, sciences, education, business, and the public square. The writers encourage us to live missionally, leaving all of our resources at God's disposal for the sake of his kingdom. 

Finally, part three contends that the North American church must come to terms with its missional calling-just as international missionaries do-and gives a starting point and parameters for conceiving the church's mission to all people groups and cultural contexts. Chapters here include ones on unreached people groups, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Postmoderns.

    Theology and Practice of Mission: God, the Church, and the Nations has proven to be one of the most important books in my library. As a church planting practitioner I have found it easy to be caught up in the mechanics of church planting. Although, in many ways, this book has renewed my zeal for church planting, it has now placed it in its proper perspective. Theology and Practive of Mission has built a foundation of sound Biblical theology in which to embark on the mission of God. We hear the phrase, "seeing it from a 30,000 foot level". This book helps me see from the "heavenly level" the mission of God and the role of the church in His mission.
