Overview

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:

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?
