Drawing from Scripture, social sciences, and history, David J. Hesselgrave tackles the most pressing issues facing missionaries today.

The author and contributors show how theological issues have real impact on missions, and they present arguments on both sides of the fifteen subjects of debate while also offering their own biblically informed perspectives on the subjects. Despite rapid global changes, Hesselgrave holds that much of traditional theory, practice, and theology is still valid, if not essential, for the future of Christian missions.

Current and prospective missionaries, pastors, seminary students, missions committee members, and laypeople interested in world Christianity will all benefit from the discussions covered in this book, including:

  • Sovereignty and free will: An impossible mix or a perfect match?
  • Common ground and enemy territory: How should we approach adherents of other faiths?
  • Business as mission: When is it mission and when is it not?
  • Harvest missions and pioneer missions: Discipling the masses or reaching to the margins?
  • This updated and expanded edition includes five more questions along with new applications and reflections on the ten questions presented in the first edition.

    The label Generation X has been applied to those born since the early/mid 1960s and by their attitudes and outlook. This generation has shown itself to be the first influenced by post-modernity rather than modernity. Anecdotal evidence of the personal experience of Xers shows that they do not find it easy to fit into the culture and structures of much of the contemporary Western church, especially in its organizational forms such as mission agencies. If Generation Xers do world mission their way, what would it look like? Are new strategies, structures and methodologies needed or can the existing structures be changed to allow the Xer worldview to exist alongside others? Looking at how the 'Generation Xers' view mission, this book provides ideas and models for systematic organizational culture change as we seek to do postmission by a postmodern generation. Contributions come from England, Ireland, New Zealand and the US.

    More than ever, North America is being flooded by people from all around the world, many of them here illegally. How should the church respond to these sojourners among us? In Strangers Next Door professor of evangelism and church planting J. D. Payne introduces the phenomenon of migrations of peoples to Western nations and explores how the church should respond in light of the mission of God. As we understand and embrace the fact that the least-reached people groups now reside in (and continue to migrate to) Western countries, churches have unprecedented opportunites to freely share the gospel with them. This book includes practical guidelines for doing crosscultural missions and developing a global strategy of mission. It also highlights examples of churches and organizations attempting to reach, partner with, and send migrants to minister to their people. Discover how you can reach out to the strangers next door by welcoming them into God's family.

    Church planting movements are similar to wildfires in that both have a small beginning but given the right conditions, they rage and spread to affect everything around them. Spiritually speaking, the goal of any missionary should be to start a "wildfire" that literally changes the cultural landscape of the target area. Most of the time, however, wildfires do not just happen. There must be a source or a catalytic event. In His sovereign grace, the LORD often chooses to use ordinary people as fire starters. e3 Partners Ministries is built upon the premise that God can and does use ordinary people just like you and me to strike the match and change the world. ---- About the Author: George G. Robinson (D.Miss., Western Seminary in Portland, OR) has served e3 Partners Ministries for the past five years in various capacities helping to equip God's people to evangelize the lost and establish new churches around the world. In 2008 he was appointed as Assistant Professor of Missions and Evangelism at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina where he will continue to equip and mobilize churches to engage in the completion of the Great Commission.
