From the Back Cover:

Theology of Mission Meets Missionary Practice

The theology of Christian mission has undergone dramatic shifts throughout the history of the church, particularly in the twentieth century. Encountering Theology of Mission provides biblical clarity and global awareness regarding the mission of the church in the twenty-first century. Leading mission experts discuss biblical theology of mission, provide historical overviews of the development of various viewpoints, and address current theological issues in global mission from an evangelical perspective. They offer creative approaches to answering some of the most pressing questions in theology of mission and missionary practice today.

"Good maps can be hard to find. Thankfully Craig Ott, Stephen Strauss, and Timothy Tennent have drawn up a comprehensive yet easy-to-navigate guide to the complex terrain of theologizing about Christian mission. It is hard to imagine a more careful presentation of this vast subject."--J. Nelson Jennings, mission pastor and consultant, Onnuri Community Church, Seoul, South Korea

"Deep gratitude to our three writers for a rich and textured work! It is rooted in Scripture, history, and context; it is challenging yet very readable; it is antiphonal--moving from theology and theory to the highly practical and engaging--with some excellent sidebars and case studies. Although the book will be seen as a text by some, I would highly recommend this book to my global colleagues, the reflective practitioners of mission today."--William D. Taylor, global ambassador, World Evangelical Alliance

"This globalized world needs a relevant theology of mission that articulates a cogent 'biblical direction for the church's fulfillment of its missionary mandate.' This excellent book moves us from a paternalistic mind-set to a fraternal one that seeks to proclaim Christ from everywhere to everywhere. I would strongly commend this book not only to professors and students in seminaries but also to practitioners and missions committees in local churches."--Junias Venugopal, provost and dean of education, Moody Bible Institute
