Publisher's Description

Weighing Approaches to Finish the Task

Christians have been reflecting on best practices for as long as they have been engaging in missions. Practitioners have developed diverse strategies to promote the spread of the Gospel—such as indigenous church planting, disciple-making movements, community development, dynamically equivalent Bible translations, and chronological Bible storytelling. These models began as creative analyses of the mission endeavor, in light of the current cultural context. As that context shifts, it is also important to critically re-examine these models.

Advancing Models of Mission reflects on the missionaries and models of the past and reconsiders current models, all with the aim of looking toward the future of evangelical mission. This compendium of thirteen essays tackles such timely and difficult questions as:

· How does globalization challenge the 10/40 window model?

· How does hybridity and diaspora change the way we think about people groups and identity formation?

· How does the colonial history in Africa affect believers' connection with global evangelism?

Readers can learn about the contexts of the past that shaped our current missiological models while listening to diverse voices describe how those models are experienced considering our changing realities. Through honest analysis of the past few centuries of missionary movement, Advancing Models of Mission provides hope for the future.

Editorial Reviews

The goal of historical study is to gain an accurate view of the past. And when we tell the truth about the past, we are forced to rejoice and lament. Ultimately, doing history teaches us to be wise. In this volume, the authors present the people, places, and practices of historic Christian mission, inviting the church to greater humility, wisdom, and skill as we strive to be faithful servants in God’s mission.
