Publisher's Description

Mission is constantly innovating. As contexts change, so too does the work of the church. Today, in the face of a rapidly changing world and a growing global church, the task of mission must continue to innovate in unexpected ways. The State of Missiology Today explores the developments and transformations in the study and practice of mission. Looking both backwards—especially over the first half-century of Fuller Theological Seminary's School of Intercultural Studies—and forwards, the contributors to this volume chart the current shape of mission studies and its prospects in the twenty-first century. This Missiological Engagements volume features contributions by

Editorial Reviews

"In this volume, scholars and practitioners document and analyze contemporary innovations in Christian mission. The resulting kaleidoscope of approaches demonstrates a global transition from an outdated model of mission to a centered appreciation of diversity. As these writers show, that shift has massive implications. It opens the way for collaboration and further innovation in mission contexts around the world."

— Frances S. Adeney, William A. Benfield Professor Emerita of Evangelism and Global Mission, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

"This collection of essays captures numerous insightful perspectives on contemporary approaches to the study and practice of Christian mission, and is a worthy testimony to Fuller's powerful ongoing contributions to missiology."

—Paul Kollman, University of Notre Dame

"Beginning with several assessments of the pioneering work and contribution of Donald McGavran and his successors at Fuller's SWM/SIS, the contributors to this volume touch critically on historical developments, contemporary issues, and future possibilities for Christian communities who hear the Spirit's enduring invitation to intercultural missional engagement. Practitioners, students, and scholars will find much to ponder, discuss, and act on by attending to these thoughtful voices from around the world."

— Thomas John Hastings, executive director, Overseas Ministries Study Center, New Haven, Connecticut

"The State of Missiology Today captures the presentations given on the fiftieth anniversary of Fuller Seminary's School of Intercultural Studies. Both well-known and emerging missiologists from around the world and across ecclesiastical communities met to honor and critique the past and anticipate the future of innovations in global mission. Beginning with Charles Van Engen's introduction, noting ten missiological innovations that have been connected to Fuller, and ending with Scott Sunquist's eight trends in mission to guide us into the future, the chapters in between are loaded with deep insights, relevant perspectives, and practical applications. Bravo! for a great book that will surely become a lasting landmark in missiology."

—Darrell Whiteman, missiological anthropologist, former president, Asbury Theological Seminary
