Overview

This important study documents the continuing decline in mission funding throughout the mainline denominations in North America and Australia and offers sound, biblically based recommendations for turning the situation around. Ronald Vallet and Charles Zech examine the downward trend in mission funding and seek to explain the phenomenon by exploring social science theories that at the same time purport to provide solutions to the problem. They go beyond these theories, however, by arguing that mainline denominations are in fact fatally enmeshed in the assumptions and presuppositions of modernity and that insights and real solutions to the funding crisis are more likely to be found in renewed Bible study and theological reflection.
