Product Description

Thoroughly updated and revised - with half of the chapters new to the second edition - Missiology equips the reader with a vast resource on contemporary missions. This graduate-level introduction is divided into five sections (Introduction to the Study of Missiology, Biblical Basis of Missions, Theology of Missions, and Applied Missiology) and offers essays on modern missions issues and methods such as contextualization, spiritual warfare, and orality, as well as chapters on major world religions and cults in North America.

A retired missionary and long-time professor of missions, editor John Mark Terry enlists a wide range of evangelical authors, most with significant experience in international or North American missions. Pastors will find helpful information on church planting in North America and on developing a missions-minded church. Students will benefit from the chapters on understanding the call to missions and the current status of world evangelization. All readers will profit from a valuable one-volume reference work on missions.

    To date there have been very few, exceptionally few, history and strategy of missions books. Of those few only one can be considered both accurate and readable, this book was Jerusalem to Jaya by Ruth A. Tucker. While this work was considered the standard, it has been challenged and in many ways surpassed buy a new work titled Missiology: An Introduction to the Foundations, History, and Strategies of World Missions. This work by John Mark Terry, takes a different approach than Tucker did. For Terry as editor compiled a scholarly collection of articles detailing missions as a whole instead of individual biographical accounts.

    Furthermore while this is a scholarly work it is very readable and can be used in teaching missions to a wide variety of ages from teenagers on up. Even more I would suggest that this work could be adapted to be a Early College text book. While there is definitely a Baptist bent to this work, it does not exclude missions efforts from other theological views. I commend this work to anyone who is serious about missions as a study to understand and apply the history and strategies of world missions up in through the modern era.

    I received this book from B&H Academic free of charge for an unbisaed review, I was not required to write a positive review.

    Some thoughts on "MISSIOLOGY_ 2nd Edition

    The message doesnt change but the method of delivering it does. That is evident in sermons, in church music, and the way we do missions. Back in 1997 the first edition of Missiology was published, and now in 2015 the 2nd edition of Missiology: An Introduction to the Foundations, History, and Strategies of World Missions (edited by John Mark Terry, published by B&H Academic) is available. Again the message doesnt change, but the way we take that message to the world certainly has changed. The nations are coming to us in numbers greater than ever before and at times we have to adapt to the changing climate.

    If you're a big fan of 3-point sermons you might wonder why this wasnt broken into 3 sections instead of 5, but sometimes we have to change the way we do things. There is a logic to the sub-divisions, and the papers are neatly arranged according to several themes, the study of missions, a Biblical basis, theology history, and application. (For you three-pointers, you have an intro, 3 points and an application.)

    Many prominent names in the field of Missiology are included in the list of authors represented in this edition. They are noted scholars who have advanced the study of Missions through their experience and writing. This is an ideal reference book for all those interested in studying how the Great Commission is being fulfilled in the 21st centuryand it certainly has changed over the last few hundred years.

    Although I have no complaints about the authors, the papers, or the way things are arranged, I would have liked to see some indication of when the papers were actually written (and maybe that's there and I missed it). Especially when things are being updated, it's helpful for me to be able to look back and see how things have changed. Is the change something that has been happening over the past 50 years or 100? Or is it a recent (3-5 years) change?

    This a must for the reference shelf of anyone interested in missions.



    I received this book for free from B&H for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
