The first impression most readers will gain of the book is of its enormous size and scope. Transforming Missions truly a ¿blockbuster¿ production, consisting of nearly 600 finely-written pages, each one crammed with scholarly erudition. Bosch¿s magnum opus is in fact not one book but three books in one: a biblical prologue (¿New Testament models¿), a historical centre section (¿historical paradigms of mission¿),and a missiological conclusion (¿toward a relevant missiology¿). The decision of the ASM Series Editorial Committee was that the three books should be published within a single cover as a unitary work, giving readers access to the total movement and flow of Bosch¿s thought. The result is a magisterial volume a contemporary summa of the biblical foundations, historical growth and development, and ¿elements of an emerging paradigm¿ for mission in our post-modern era. Transforming Mission may well serve as a vade mecum to inspire, educate, and guide a new generation of twenty-first century missiologists!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
