The Reformation and Lutheran orthodoxy largely focused on the repristination of the Gospel, yet the writings coming out of these periods indicate an undeniable missionary flavor. Mission from the Cross further accentuates the fact that the doctrine of justification is the golden thread that holds the mission tapestry neatly together. The author's African and German roots bring to light many previously unknown German missiologists. The Lutheran Church is a missionary church! Rev. Dr. David P. Tswaedi Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Southern Africa Schulz examines in detail how the Book of Concord carries adherents of the Lutheran Confessions, without exception, into evangelistic engagement with the world. Conversing with a rich variety of contemporary theologians, the author shows how the trinitarian faith informs God's sending of His people to the world with the announcement of Christ's saving work. Using the Book of Concord, Mission from the Cross addresses practical challenges in conversion, assimilation, and church planting. Particularly helpful is its anchoring of the missiological enterprise in the doctrine of justification and the significance of that doctrine for addressing both the needs of individual sinners and the sincere inquiries of non-Christians. Robert Kolb Missions Professor of Systematic Theology, Director of the Institute for Mission Studies, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri Detlev Schulz reads Luther and the Lutheran Confessions, especially the Augsburg Confession, with missiological eyes. He explores the trinitarian nature of the mission of God; the role of the Church and the Sacraments in mission; and aspects of pastoral ministry, Christian vocation, and ethics related to mission. The work of Christ on the cross is presented both as a central principle of a theologically synthetic approach to mission and as the key stimulus continually invigorating the missionary church. Mission from the Cross will be on my reading lists. Andrew K. Pfeiffer Head of the School of Pastoral Theology, Australian Lutheran College, Adelaide, South Australia

2014 Best Texts of Missiology, from Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore Mission--a driving force in the long Christian story--today is often cast as the embarrassing relative of tall-steeple religiosity. In our wider culture it's now tucked in the endnotes of book-club histories or forms the ghostlike ellipses in the six o'clock news. But in Introducing Christian Mission Today, Michael Goheen brings the vibrant history, motivation and challenges of Christian mission to the fore. Through the centuries Christian mission has always been recalibrating, retooling and reevangelizing. It has repeatedly taken surprising turns as it is carried along by the Spirit of God. Goheen's introduction to mission's biblical, theological and historical dimensions engages the present and anticipates the future. As he unfolds the major issues of the global and urban, the pluralistic and wholistic contexts of mission today, he lays the ground for engaging in God s great kingdom enterprise. This full-scale text incorporates the keen missional insights of Lesslie Newbigin, David Bosch and other formative thinkers. It will be a valued resource not only for those in crosscultural contexts but also for those engaged in reevangelizing the West.

What relevance does the Apostle Paul have for the mission of the church in the twenty-first century? By investigating his socioeconomic background, examining his doxological orientation in mission, delineating how and why he shared resources in the first century, and then relating all this to what has been called the contemporary International Partnership Movement, this book demonstrates that when the church engages in cross-cultural mission and ignores Pauline orthopraxy, it places unnecessary obstacles in the path of the "missio Dei." Therefore, "Mission in the Way of Paul: Biblical Mission for the Church in the Twenty-First Century" is pertinent for any course devoted to learning from and implementing biblical models of mission today.
