Product Description

In Christian Mission Among the Peoples of Asia, Jonathan Tan explores post-colonial realities of evangelism in the world's most populous continent. In recent decades, traditional notions of evangelism as missio ad gentes, mission from a Christian center out "to the peoples." have been nuanced by a new understanding of evangelizing as missio inter gentes, mission "among the peoples."

Beginning from this new understanding of mission, Jonathan Tan rethinks the task of evangelization in Asia, home to two thirds of the world's population. He explores the challenge of doing Christian mission in the context of profound socio-cultural diversity and religious pluralism, complicated by the interplay of postcolonialism, globalization, migration, religious exclusivism and other forces. Ultimately, Tan concludes, the mission efforts of Asian Christians themselves will be the crucial factor in determining the future and even the survival, of Christianity in Asia.
