Mission Partnership in Creative Tensi...

Cueva has refined his concept of ‘partnership in mission’ by advocating reciprocal contextual collaboration in this reflection on contemporary missiology. Referencing historical, theological and functional aspects of mission and analyzing its impact on the evangelical movement, he identifies that mission always develops with positive and negative tensions. Emphasizing an understanding of current missions including traditional, networking and emergent models, and how they can be combined, interconnected and interchanged, the author proposes a fresh model that ensures suitability for every context.

Hermeneutics of Mission in Matthew: I...

Matthew’s Gospel is pivotal in scholarly discussion on the hermeneutical use of the Old Testament in the New. Sarma proposes that Matthew utilizes the Old Testament as a book of promise of God’s salvific plan and that Jesus is the fulfillment of that promise. For Matthew, God’s purpose to save fallen humanity is the grand narrative of the Bible. Using promise-fulfillment as the interpretative framework for mission theology, Sarma explores redemptive events, institutions, geography, prophetic ministry, and typology.

This publication addresses the most challenging phase in church-planting missions, the torch being passed from pioneering missionaries to indigenous leaders. Having observed a very different story in the relationship between Olive Doke and Paul Kasonga, Mbewe argues that the key is deep-rooted mutual respect and admiration.

In Academia for the Church: Eastern a...

Tension between theory and practice in theological education is an unfortunate yet common occurrence, with educators sometimes finding themselves on one extreme or the other. Some academics can be so immersed in high-level theological discourse that they hardly interact with the main questions of the average church-goer, while others are so keen to be engaging and relevant they fail to be rigorous in their scholarship.

Can God Save My Village?: A Theologic...

Missions amidst Pagodas: Contextual C...

For almost 200 years Protestant missionaries have endeavoured to communicate the gospel to Burmese Buddhists in Myanmar.

In this publication Peter Thein Nyunt, a former Buddhist monk, examines past and current approaches of the Protestant church among Burmese Buddhists. Based on his findings he develops a contextual missiological strategy, with a relevant christological message and ecclesiological structure.

Concrete Time and Concrete Eternity: ...

This publication investigates how Karl Barth’s doctrine of time and eternity can contribute to the continued understanding of the relationship of divine eternity to time or temporality. Examining from a theological, philosophical and physical perspective, with emphasis on the Trinity, as well as Barth’s Christology and pneumatology, Lui helps us understand Barth’s doctrine. Barth’s contribution to the subject is significant, with his doctrine of time and eternity being relational in ontology, Trinitarian in background and concrete in character.
