Editorial Reviews

"This book is must reading for all those who would lead Christ's church in this new millennium. Two-thirds of all Christians now live in Asia, Africa and Latin America. This means that the church's mission is now a truly global enterprise, as Escobar shows. Samuel Escobar, the dean of Latin American Protestant Evangelical missiologists, gives us here an insightful, careful, concise and passionate overview of the complex and constantly changing reality facing us all in the church's mission today. Escobar demonstrates a clear and compelling missionary commitment to the missional goal that, in the words of Donald McGavran, 'women and men become disciples of Jesus Christ and responsible members of Christ's Church.' The book's insightful trinitarian organization is capped off by a very helpful review of selected works by mission thinkers of the past fifty years."
"In a truly global perspective, this passionate and yet well-reasoned and eminently readable plea for a holistic mission is a must-read for all who care about the kingdom of God and the transformation of the kingdoms of this world. Writing with knowledge and sensitivity reflective of his worldwide experience, Escobar combines the high idealism of the biblical vision with a sober assessment of political, social, religious and cultural realities of our time. Delightful and challenging at the same time!"
"The twenty-first century is the century of global Christianity. In this century, we are increasingly aware of the fact that the growth of the Christian faith around the world is the result of obedience in mission on the part of previous generations of Christians. Since God expects all Christians to be about advancing his rule in the world, mission today must become the responsibility of the global church. The New Global Mission, written by a person who knows mission from multiple perspectives, is a masterful articulation of the need for mission to be the joyous duty of Christians from everywhere. It is especially useful as a tool for education about mission in diverse Christian settings."

    In his book, The New Global Mission: The Gospel from Everywhere to Everyone, Samuel Escobar identifies the significant paradigm shift in Christian Mission. No longer is the Mission field monopolized by elite westerns with a mission model that too closely represents western imperialism, rather the church from the south (South America, Asia, Africa) now has a vital voice in carrying out the great commission. According to Escobar, numbers of volunteer missionaries from the western church is now diminishing while those from the south are engaging in the powerful ministry of the Holy Spirit. As Escobar outlines a brief history of Christian mission, he highlights how todays world has experienced dramatic changes. He asserts that along with the globalization of our society, we are now post-Christian and postmodern. It is the task of the church to recognize and understand how todays society is structured differently than that of the modern world. Contextualization must be explored, not only in how we read scripture, but also how we understand other people and other cultures. The Gospel has to be communicated in a way that it speaks into different cultures. This is of course must be done while emphasizing that the root message of the Gospel cannot be compromised in such a way that it is absorbed into the culture. Escobars missional approach is saturated in Trinitarian theology. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are uniquely involved in the work of missions, as outlined in the narrative of Christs ministry in the Gospels, the launching of the church in Acts, and the sustaining work of Paul and the other Apostles as documented in their letters. Thus, in the midst of kingdom work, todays missional church is Biblical literate, historical aware, and in tune with Gods Spirit. As the church actively works toward the kingdom practice of justice, it cognitively seeks guidance from the missional God who is one and three.
