Overview

Christian mission is no longer a matter of missionaries from the West going to the rest of the world. Rather, the growth of Christianity in Latin America, Africa and parts of Asia is eclipsing that of the Western church.

In the third millennium of the Christian era, Christian mission is truly global, with missionaries from all places going to all peoples.

Veteran missiologist Samuel Escobar presents this introduction to Christian mission today. He explores the new realities of our globalized world and assesses the context of a changing mission field that is simultaneously secular and syncretistic. He also sets forth a thoroughly biblical theology of missions, considering how God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are at work around the world, with implications for how Christians are to go about the task of global mission.

Editorial Reviews

Charles Van Engen
"This book is must reading for all those who would lead Christ's church in this new millennium. Two-thirds of all Christians now live in Asia, Africa and Latin America. This means that the church's mission is now a truly global enterprise, as Escobar shows. Samuel Escobar, the dean of Latin American Protestant Evangelical missiologists, gives us here an insightful, careful, concise and passionate overview of the complex and constantly changing reality facing us all in the church's mission today. Escobar demonstrates a clear and compelling missionary commitment to the missional goal that, in the words of Donald McGavran, 'women and men become disciples of Jesus Christ and responsible members of Christ's Church.' The book's insightful trinitarian organization is capped off by a very helpful review of selected works by mission thinkers of the past fifty years."
Peter Kuzmic
"In a truly global perspective, this passionate and yet well-reasoned and eminently readable plea for a holistic mission is a must-read for all who care about the kingdom of God and the transformation of the kingdoms of this world. Writing with knowledge and sensitivity reflective of his worldwide experience, Escobar combines the high idealism of the biblical vision with a sober assessment of political, social, religious and cultural realities of our time. Delightful and challenging at the same time!"
Tite Tiénou
"The twenty-first century is the century of global Christianity. In this century, we are increasingly aware of the fact that the growth of the Christian faith around the world is the result of obedience in mission on the part of previous generations of Christians. Since God expects all Christians to be about advancing his rule in the world, mission today must become the responsibility of the global church. The New Global Mission, written by a person who knows mission from multiple perspectives, is a masterful articulation of the need for mission to be the joyous duty of Christians from everywhere. It is especially useful as a tool for education about mission in diverse Christian settings."
