What constitutes the unity of the church over time and across cultures? Can our account of the church's apostolic faith embrace the cultural diversity of world Christianity? The ecumenical movement that began in the twentieth century posed the problem of the church's apostolicity in profound new ways. In the attempt to find unity in the midst of the Protestant-Catholic schism, participants in this movement defined the church as a distinct culture—complete with its own structures, rituals, architecture and music. Apostolicity became a matter of cultivating the church's own (Western) culture. At the same time it became disconnected from mission, and more importantly, from the diverse reality of world Christianity. In this pioneering study, John Flett assesses the state of the conversation about the apostolic nature of the church. He contends that the pursuit of ecumenical unity has come at the expense of dealing responsibly with crosscultural difference. By looking out to the church beyond the West and back to the New Testament, Flett presents a bold account of an apostolicity that embraces plurality.

Die Einflüsse Luthers und des Luthertums blieben nicht auf die politischen und religiösen Binnenwelten des mitteleuropäischen Protestantismus beschränkt. Im Gegenteil: Luthers Theologie fand weltweit, vor allem in den USA, aber auch in Afrika, Australien, Asien und Teilen Lateinamerikas Verbreitung. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass der Einfluss und die Wirkung des Luthertums in den vielfältigen Regionen und Kulturen außerhalb Europas bislang nur wenig erforscht ist.Der Band schließt diese Lücke und fragt nach der Wirkung von Luthers Theologie in den außereuropäischen Kulturen - vor allem unter dem Aspekt der Wechselseitigkeit und Fremderfahrung kulturell-religiöser Wahrnehmungen. Die Beiträge stellen nicht nur die weit reichenden Einflüsse des Luthertums in den USA dar, sondern auch die Begrenztheit seiner Wirkung in Australien oder China und die lange herrschende Ablehnung in Lateinamerika. Der historische Bogen spannt sich dabei von der zeitgenössischen Wahrnehmung in den konfessionellen Welten des 16. Jahrhunderts bis in die säkularisierte Welt der Moderne.Aus dem InhaltGregory Baum (Montreal), Lutherische Theologie des Widerstandes heuteHartmut Bobzin (Erlangen), Gedanken Martin Luthers zum IslamPeter Burschel (München/Freiburg), Das Monster.

As a theological biography of Professor Walter J. Hollenweger, this book surveys his extensive interests, varied methods and wide-ranging reflection. But Price also incorporates an enquiry into the nature and function of western academic theology relating to to Christian practice today. Hollenweger's research into Pentecostalism, Ecumenism and Intercultural Theology is here brought together in a synthetic overview. Issues such as the unity and diversity of the Bible and its interpretations, the particular and universal dimensions of worldwide Chrsitianity, and relations between Christians and between Christians and 'the others' are all exploited in order to stimulate fresh thinking on the mission of the churches.

The twenty-first-century church cannot afford to neglect mission. When church and culture no longer share a common outlook, the only way forward is mission. Pope Francis recognizes this in his call for a missionary conversion of the church. Responding to this invitation, Missa Est! is a constructive work in ecclesiology addressing the relationship between liturgy and mission in the church’s life. It advances a notion of the church grounded in both liturgy and mission, where neither is subordinated to nor collapsed into the other. The church’s liturgical rites disclose and enact the church’s identity as a missionary community. Close examination of the sources at the heart of traditional communion ecclesiology: Trinitarian theology, the sacraments of initiation, and eucharistic theology, yields an ecclesiology in which the church is constituted by both liturgy and mission. These are two distinct ways of participating in the triune life of God, which is revealed in the paschal mystery. The church’s pilgrimage to God’s kingdom takes it through the world in mission. The church, as the body of Christ, is given away to God and to the world, for the world’s salvation. The result is a contemporary restatement of traditional ecclesiology, transposed into a missional key.

The Anglican Bishop George Bell (of Chichester) and the General Secretary of the World Council of Churches, Willem A. Visser’t Hooft (of Geneva) exchanged hundreds of letters between 1938 and 1958. The correspondence, reproduced and commented upon here, mirrors the efforts made across the ecumenical movement to unite the Christian churches and also to come to terms with an age of international crisis and conflict. In these first decades of the World Council, it was widely felt that the Church could make a noteworthy contribution to the mitigation of political tensions all over the world. That’s why Bell and Visser’t Hooft talked not only to bishops and the clergy, but also to the prime ministers and presidents of many countries. They raised their voices in memoranda and published their public letters in important newspapers. This was the World Council’s most successful period.

Russian Baptist Mission Theology in Historical and Contemporary Perspective

Since the disintegration of the USSR many Russian Baptists have actively engaged in evangelism, church planting, and acts of social service. This book is a response to the need to critically evaluate the effectiveness of past mission efforts and their undergirding theology. In this detailed study, Dr Andrey Kravtsev combines historical and qualitative studies to outline the understanding of mission developed by Russian Baptists during the Soviet era when they were almost completely isolated from global missiological developments. First, Kravtsev identifies four key missiological concepts and uses them to analyze the history of mission theology in global evangelical mission movements and the Russian Baptists. He then interviewed thirty leaders from the Russian Union of Evangelical Christian-Baptists to find their view of these concepts, and their convictions of the need to reconsider traditional missiological views. From his findings, Dr Kravtsev suggests five themes for facilitating the transition of Russian Baptist mission theology from the late-Soviet model of eschatological escapism, to a holistic, missional evangelicalism. This book places evangelical mission in contemporary Russian socio-political and ideological contexts and provides an important contribution for leading churches to a renewed missionary encounter with culture.

What does it mean to be a small missional community in a deeply secularized society? Drawing on a wide range of practical insight with mission in one of the most secular contexts of the West, Pilgrims and Priests blends this experience with a thorough analysis of relevant biblical, historical, sociological, theological and spiritual sources that bear relevance to missional identity in the challenging circumstances presented by the secular West. It presents a hopeful perspective, rooted in a realistic appraisal of reality and rich theological reflections. The result is an important resource for thinkers, practitioners and all who are fascinated by the future of Christianity in the West.

Showcasing many German missiological works available in English for the first time, this longitudinal study tackles the history and dynamics of contextualization and sheds new light on the state of missiology today.

The recent rediscovery of the doctrine of the Trinity has left great impact on the thought and life of the Christian Church. With this reinstatement, the Trinity, which was left out for long as an esoteric mystery, has captured the imagination of theologians and elicited remarkable trinitarian formulations from across theological traditions. This contemporary development has forced the church to review its dogma, spirituality, and Christian practices through the lens of this central doctrine of the Christian faith. One of the important and essential upshots of the doctrine has been the reclamation of a theocentric and trinitarian understanding of mission as the missio Dei. In view of the modern renewal of the Trinity and the global expansion of Christianity, this book explores insights and perspectives from the trinitarian thoughts of St. Augustine and the Indian theologian Brahmabandhab Upadhyay that can inform missio Dei theology relevant for the Indian context.
