Over the past half-century theologians and missiologists have addressed the reality that Christianity is not only a global but also an intercultural phenomenon by developing local and contextual theologies and by exploring issues like contextualization, inculturation, and translation. In recent years these trajectories have coalesced into a new field called intercultural theology. Bringing together missiology, religious studies, social science research, and Christian theology is a fresh attempt to rethink the discipline of theology in light of the diversity of global Christianity today.
In this second volume of his three-volume Intercultural Theology, Henning Wrogemann turns to theologies of mission. Tracing developments across a range of Christian traditions, movements, themes, and religions of the globe, Wrogemann provides an overview of the theological underpinnings, rationalizations, and visions for mission and its practice. This is essential reading for doing theology in a multicultural key.

"The publication in English of Volume Two of Henning Wrogemann's Intercultural Theology is to be heartily welcomed. The book covers a phenomenal range, in terms of period, Christian tradition, and theme. All future students of the theology of Christian mission will want to consult this seminal and insightful work."
"Following the acclaimed first volume of Intercultural Theology, the English translation of this second volume, Theologies of Mission, breaks new ground in mission studies and intercultural theology. While never losing sight of his context in Germany, Wrogemann begins with an overview of developments in mission theology over the past century and then spotlights how major church traditions have handled the subject. Next, he offers an illuminating comparison of approaches to contemporary controversies in mission and concludes with a constructive approach he calls 'mission as oikoumenical doxology.' The scope of this volume is grounded and global, empirical and theoretical, and the methodology Wrogemann presents is highly instructive for those trying to make sense of the myriad theologies of mission in the context of world Christianity today."
"It's hard to take in the whole of this impressive volume. Positioned within the discourse of the ecumenical movement, it nevertheless pays careful attention to other traditions to offer a magisterial treatment of contemporary theologies of mission. Wrogemann brings theology of mission up to date by incorporating a world Christianity perspective that emphasizes local reception and initiative and is also attentive to gender and regional diversities. Not only is Theologies of Mission comprehensive as a textbook, it also proposes a theology of 'mission as the glory of God' that emphasizes its spiritual sources, which will interest other theologians. We will be digesting and using this book for a long time to come."
"In this comprehensive and magisterial study of theologies of mission, developed down through history and a century of twelve international world mission conferences, across the ecumenical and evangelical spectrum, and paying close attention to the various cultural and social contexts in which theologies of mission emerge, Wrogemann has made an immense contribution to missiology and mission studies. His attention to detail in the different theologies of mission, while at the same time enabling the reader to understand the breadth and complexities of theologies of mission, is a monumental achievement that Wrogemann does brilliantly. This second volume of Intercultural Theology will surely become a classic text and be of immense value to both academics and practitioners of mission."
