The Role of Pastoral Centres in the Church's Mission to Evangelize/Paul B. Steffen. Today, in the globalized world, the mission of the Church is challenged by many external and internal forces. It faces the challenges of secularization and the revitalization of faith. In Asia, Christianity remains a minority religion; its members are under pressure from governments and other faiths. In some countries, Christianity, even faces the threat of extinction. Burning, destruction and closure of churches is not uncommon. In order to face these emerging challenges and to be dynamic and achieve its God-given mandate, Christian mission must rediscover its movement character for our contemporary times. For this, Christian leaders must objectively and critically look at the present world and analyze the logic of its predicaments and respond creatively to bring the meaning of Christ to today's world. The researched articles in this book by renowned scholars aim towards responding to contemporary challenges to Christian mission. Christian ethical reflections contained in these articles can contribute to the world of today for the shaping of its future towards a humane world. This book, therefore, is the fruit of this Christian hope towards a better tomorrow. It may be utopian. But the utopian hope is a good antidote against the fear of the present, which paralyzes people to inaction. The signs of the times and the movements of the Spirit need to be embraced by the Christian community since they respond to the challenges of our world. (jacket). Bookseller Inventory # 119539
