Distillation of crucial issues for the church by one of the leading voices in missional theology

Since the publication of the groundbreaking volume Missional Church in 1998, there has been wide-ranging engagement with the theme of the missional church. One of the leading voices in the missional church conversation, Darrell Guder here lays out basic theological issues that must be addressed for the church to serve God faithfully as Christ's witnessing people.

Guder argues that there are major consequences for every classical theological locus if the fundamental claims of the missional church discussion are acknowledged. In Called to Witness he delves into these consequences, saying that we need to keep doing missional theology until it is possible to leave off the -missional scaffolding- because, after all, mission defines the very essence and calling of the church.

The Cape Town Commitment, which arose from The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization (Cape Town, 2010), stands in the historic line of The Lausanne Covenant (1974) and The Manila Manifesto (1989). It has been translated into twenty-five languages and has commanded wide acceptance around the world. The Commitment is set in two parts. Part 1 is a Confession of Faith, crafted in the language of covenantal love. Part 2 is a Call to Action. The local church, mission agencies, special-interest groups, and Christians in the professions are all urged to find their place in its outworking. This annotated bibliography of The Cape Town Commitment, arranged by topic, has been compiled by specialists in a range of fields. As such, it is the first bibliography of its kind. Arranged in sections for graduate-level teaching Equally useful for research students "Darrell Bock has produced another significant volume, which will be now and in the future a standard exposition of The Cape Town Commitment of the Third Lausanne Congress 2010, a historic confession of evangelical and biblical faith and a call to action for the entire Christian community in the twenty-first century. His timely work will be greatly appreciated as a textbook for theological training and a ministry guide for all those who are committed to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ." --Sang-Bok David Kim, President, Torch Trinity Graduate University, Seoul, Korea "This is an extraordinarily important resource for the global evangelical church. It provides a wealth of material in support of The Cape Town Commitment, which itself epitomizes the very best of twenty-first-century evangelical thought and devotion. No question--these two items together belong in every seminary and Bible college curriculum and in every evangelical church library in the world." --Samuel Logan, International Director, The World Reformed Fellowship "Every reader will be pleasantly surprised and grateful to find extensive resources they never knew about. The Cape Town Commitment unites the voices of evangelical leaders from 198 nations. So as new editions emerge, I am confident that the editors and publisher will be keen to include even more works from the non-western world. This is a hugely welcome start to an ongoing international collaborative process." --Christopher J. H. Wright, International Ministries Director, Langham Partnership "This piece of work combines theological competence and dedication. It is a gem even for seasoned theological teachers like me, and for all those who wish to deepen their evangelical faith, this will prove to be extremely useful." --Carver Yu, President, China Graduate School of Theology Darrell Bock (PhD, Aberdeen University) is the former President of the Evangelical Theological Society and the author of several books. He is Research Professor of New Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary."

    Jesus sends us into the world just as the Father sent him. And yet thousands of years later Christians continue to disagree on what this involves. Some believe that the focus of Christian mission is evangelizing and "saving souls." Others emphasize global justice issues or relief and development work. Is either view correct on its own? John Stott's classic book presents an enduring and holistic view of Christian mission that is just as needed today. Newly updated and expanded by Christopher J. H. Wright, Christian Mission in the Modern World provides a biblically based approach to mission that addresses both spiritual and physical needs. With his trademark and unparalleled clarity and conviction, Stott illuminates how the Great Commission itself not only assumes the proclamation that makes disciples, but also teaches obedience to the Great Commandment of love and service. Wright has expertly updated the original book and demonstrates the continuing relevance of Stott's prescient thinking. This balanced approach to mission offers timeless guidance for current and future Christians to embrace Jesus' unconflicted and holistic model of ministry.

    This book explores how religions have changed in a globalized world and how Christianity is unique among them. Harold Netland, an expert in philosophical aspects of religion and pluralism, offers a fresh analysis of religion in today's globalizing world. He challenges misunderstandings of the concept of religion itself and shows how particular religious traditions, such as Buddhism, undergo significant change with modernization and globalization. Netland then responds to issues concerning the plausibility of Christian commitments to Jesus Christ and the unique truth of the Christian gospel in light of religious diversity. The book concludes with basic principles for living as Christ's disciples in religiously diverse contexts.

    Why should the church be concerned about cultures? Louis J. Luzbetak began to answer this question twenty-five years ago with the publication of The Church and Cultures: An Applied Anthropology for the Religious Worker. Reprinted six times and translated into five languages, it became an undisputed classic in the field. Now, by popular demand, Luzbetak has thoroughly rewritten his work, completely updating it in light of contemporary anthropological and missiological thought and in face of current world conditions. Serving as a handbook for a culturally sensitive ministry and witness, The Church and Cultures introduces the non-anthropologist to a wealth of scientific knowledge directly relevant to pastoral work, religious education social action and liturgy - in fact, to all forms of missionary activity in the church. It focuses on a burning theological issue: that of contextualization, the process by which a local church integrates its understanding of the Gospel (text) with the local culture (context).
