Mission under Scrutiny: Confronting Contemporary Challenges

Mission under Scrutiny: Confronting Contemporary Challenges

What is Christian mission in a world post-everything? This volume is a masterful rethinking of the problems and prospect of the Christian vocation to mission in light of the whole checkered legacy – religious, philosophical, colonial, and economic – of modernity.

Kirk draws on his considerable experience of worldwide mission and his expertise in modern Western thought to throw light on all the most burning questions, such as:

  • What kinds of mission initiatives are appropriate today?
  • Is it legitimate to invite adherents of different religions to follow Jesus?
  • What role have Christians played in advocating violence, and also in being agents of peace and reconciliation?
