About this Item

"Working on the essential inter-relatedness and inter-penetration of the Missio Dei, Ecclesia Dei, and Regnumdei {mission of God, church of God and the reign of God}, Gaylan Mathiesen critically examines why and how these three concepts must be held constantly together if mission is to be genuine and authentic. Mathiesen goes to these three concepts to answer a very simple question: Why is it that Buddhism succeeded in Northwest Asia whereas Christianity after almost 500 years of activity there has not been able to make any major inroads? This critical contribution to and a must read for those doing mission especially in the context of Buddhism and North Asia Asia." {Charles Amjad-Ali}. This book has 224 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Gaylan Kent Mathiesen. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 064787

About this title


Those called to proclaim the gospel in Northeast Asia face a seemingly impregnable wall of culture that is highly resistant to their message. The author tackles the question of why the great outlay of human and material resources over the centuries has not produced a greater receptivity to the gospel. He seeks answers in the theological categories of missio Dei, ecclesia Dei, and regnum Dei. Biblical, doctrinal, and theological considerations as well as church history and reformation history inform this study. Where does mission originate? What is God s intent for the church? As God comes into the world in love, what does his coming look like? Where does one find God s presence and how does one discern and build on that presence? These important questions for the articulation of mission are the foci of this book.
