Description

A collection of essays that demonstrates that to be effective in the twenty-first century, mission must be prophetic as it encounters other cultures and religious traditions.

When we speak as mission as dialogue, then, we are about as far away from imagining mission as conquering the world for Christ and missionaries as marines of the Catholic Church as we probably can get. There has indeed been a radical shift, both in the world in which the church does mission and within the church s own consciousness of the goodness and even holiness of that world. These words from one of the essays in this superb collection clearly demonstrate the changing of mission today.

In this volume, Fathers Bevans and Schroeder address a primary challenge faced by Christians missioners today: How can they bring the Christian tradition to interact respectfully and effectively with members of other cultures and traditions from around the globe and still be prophetic?
