Product Description

The 21st Century is marked by mass migration. Massive population movements of the last century have radically challenged our study and practice of "mission fields." Where the church once rallied to go out into "the regions beyond," Christian missions is currently required to respond and adapt to "missions around."

Scatter and Gathered: A Global Compendium of Diaspora Missiology, a volume from the Regnum Studies in Mission series, analyzes the development of missions to the migrants and develops an understanding of the contemporary church's opportunities and responsibility vis-àvis Diaspora Missiology: "a missiological framework for understanding and participating in God's redemptive mission among peoples living outside their places of origin."

Publisher's Description

The 21st Century is marked by mass migration. Massive population movements of the last century have radically challenged our study and practice of ""mission fields."" Where the church once rallied to go out into ""the regions beyond,"" Christian missions is currently required to respond and adapt to ""missions around."" This volume analyses the development of missions to the migrants and develops an understanding of the contemporary church's opportunities and responsibility vis-a- vis Diaspora Missiology: ""a missiological framework for understanding and participating in God's redemptive mission among peoples living outside their places of origin."" As a wholistic missiologist and original Lausanner (active participant since 1974), I warmly welcome and highly recommend this comprehensive study on a globally relevant topic as both foundational and directional. This timely volume is a missio Dei viatorum at its best, focused on diaspora from a full-fledged biblical perspective while taking into account the migrant phenomena in their global diversity. Peter Kuzmic, PhD, Dr.Theol. Distinguished Professor of World Mission and European Studies, Gordon-Conwell TS, USA Founding Director of Evangelical Theological Seminary, Osijek, Croatia After being born as the son of immigrants who left Asia to pursue the ""American Dream,"" I later returned to Asia to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in the land of my father's former enemies, the Japanese. It is my joy to wholeheartedly commend to you this Global Diaspora Missiology Compendium that so powerfully describes the East to West and West to East dynamics of my own family history. This volume puts out a clarion call to the global church about a critically important mission need and strategy. In the most simple and direct fashion I can say to you that you cannot understand the full picture of global mission without understanding Diaspora Missiology. MichaelY. Oh, Ph.D., Lausanne Movement Executive Director/CEO The publication of Scattered and Gathered: A Global Compendium of Diaspora Missiology is a significant milestone. The high quality of the international conversation captured in the book makes it a veritable tour de force. A great resource for students and researchers of Christian mission and world Christianity.
