World mission needs a fully biblical ethos.

This is the contention of the editors of and contributors to World Mission, a series of essays aimed at reforming popular approaches to missions.

In the first set of essays, contributors develop a biblical theology of world mission from both the Old and New Testaments, arguing that the theology of each must stand in the foreground of missions, not recede into the background. In the second, they unfold the Great Commission in sequence, detailing how it determines the biblical strategy of all mission enterprises. Finally, they treat current issues in world mission from the perspective of the sufficiency of Scripture.

Altogether, this book aims to reform missions to be thoroughly-not just foundationally-biblical, a needed correction even among the sincerest missionaries.

Editorial Reviews

This book starts missiological thinking at the right place; world mission is first about God. The contributors are both biblical scholars and missions practitioners who are very evidently in touch with the contemporary missions setting. Their insights persuade us to renew our allegiance to the permanent things: the integrity and authority of God's Word, the Great Commission obligation to baptize, and commitment to think deeply and do the hard work to communicate the message. At the same time, this book can also be discomfiting because it successfully challenges the veracity of some current practices that promise success through expedited or misinformed means. As a theological educator, I am especially heartened to read this book's affirmation of sustained theological training as an indispensable part of the missionary enterprise. -Choon Sam Fong, Dean of Academic Studies, Baptist Theological Seminary, Singapore
