This book basically answers the purpose of life on earth: we exist for the King (page 1), realizing that the Bible tells the story of the King, reveals that the King is God, and narrates the story of his actions in regard to the world.
This edited book explores the contribution of honor-shame cultural language in gospel communication, in order to navigate the tension between faithfulness to God’s ancient Word and relevance to the current local and social context.
This book argues that cultural intelligence requires an understanding of what is happening around us and how to engage these changes well. It seeks to answer these questions in a biblically rooted way: Has the church’s approach to doing battle been effectively define and practiced?
This edited book addresses the “unexplored space” (left largely untouched by published missiology) of the conceptual and practical intersection between community development, the least reached, and the emergence of vibrant, growing churches or communities of Jesus followers. The book presents ten principles in this unexplored space, discussing both the theory and thinking behind these principles and how they work out in practice. These ten principles form the basis for the book chapters, which were first developed by workers and a missiologist from OM and invited faculty at a meeting hosted by the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies on October 2018. The geographic spread of cases in the book includes parts of South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, and among refugees in Europe.
The book argues that the Great Commission is “very individualistic as well as highly corporate and nation-focused and touches on all the social/communal elements in between these two poles: family, tribe, community, city and nation” (Kindle location 3705).
The arrival of the Millennials launched much discussion about how generational shifts impact missions.
After decades of relative openness and tolerance, China under President Xi Jinping has adopted a decidedly less tolerant attitude towards religion in general, and Christianity in particular. In this webinar we will talk about what this new restrictive environment looks like on a practical level, not only for local believers, but for foreign Christians as well.
Are you looking for a tool to teach the basics of the Great Commission? Do you need material to do a sermon series or Sunday school, small group series, or maybe just a one-off on the Great Commission? This webinar will help you do just that.
God has given every believer, in every one of our ministries, a mission — to go into the world and share the Good News about Jesus.
