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."

Editorial Reviews

"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 full0fledged 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 Theological Seminary, USA, Founding Director of Evangelical Theological Seminary, Osijek, Croatia

"The publication of Scatter 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."

—Tite Tiénou, Research Professor, Theology of Mission, Chair of Global Theology and World Christianity and Dean Emeritus Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
