A stimulating collection of essays from a variety of contributors. A mixture of well-known writers and newer voices are included, men and women, people from different backgrounds and cultures, from a variety of church traditions and theological stances. Together they explore creatively and provocatively the past, present and future of Christian mission in the West. All contributors reflect a positive desire to inculturate the gospel authentically and to open up a productive dialogue between mission theology and culture. The legacies of Augustine and Columba are considered, and the recent interest in Celtic spirituality. This is a book with a strong critical edge. The gospel is not just concerned with individual spirituality or the extension of the church, but with all aspects of human flourishing in the life-giving presence of God.
