A Vision for the Sending of the Church in North America
Paperback ISBN: 0802843506
What would a theology of the Church look like that took seriously the fact that North America is now itself a mission field? This question lies at the foundation of this volume written by an ecumenical team of six noted missiologists—Lois Barrett, Inagrace T. Dietterich, Darrell L. Guder, George R. Hunsberger, Alan J. Roxburgh, and Craig Van Gelder. The result of a three-year research project undertaken by The Gospel and Our Culture Network, this book issues a firm challenge for the church to recover its missional call right here in North America, while also offering the tools to help it do so. The authors examine North America?s secular culture and the church?s loss of dominance in today?s society. They then present a biblically based theology that takes seriously the church?s missional vocation and draw out the consequences of this theology for the structure and institutions of the church.
