Product Description

A constructive revision of trinitarian missio Dei theology, John Flett's Witness of God argues in conversation with Karl Barth and host of other historical theologians, that the neglect of mission as a theological locus has harmful consequences for understanding both the nature of God's connection with the world and the corresponding nature of the Christian community.

Flett maintains that mission/witness is an integral part of God's being, not a secondary characteristic, and contends that the church - if we truly seek to reflect the fullness of God's being - must reflect this truth by becoming a missionary community.

Endorsements

Wilbert R. Shenk
—Fuller Graduate School of Intercultural Studies

“The Witness of God is a landmark contribution to a fundamental missional theology. In the twentieth century moves were made to develop an explicit theology of mission to accompany the modern mission movement. But deeply ingrained Christendom habits of thought and behavior have remained the default position in the relationship between church and mission. John Flett deconstructs this fallacy by showing God to be the true source of mission and showing what that means — not just for mission but for theology itself. This is a brilliant and challenging work with which theologians and missiologists alike must reckon.”
