For the past thirty years mission theology has taken a backseat to mission practice. However, people of all theological stripes have begun to reexamine the theological presuppositions that underlie the mission enterprise. Of exceptional value are Van Engen's suggestion of new, biblical solutions to key issues raised by the modern mission movement that can help move us beyond the impasses that characterize so much of current thinking.
Foreword by Paul G. Hiebert. An evangelical authority on church mission encounters the issues and content of tomorrow's missions theology in a series of essays.
Charles Van Engen is the Arthur F. Glasses professor of Biblical Theology of Mission at Fuller Seminary's School of World Mission.
