Missions in Context of Violence (EMS 15)
The contributors of Missions in Contexts of Violence help readers to understand the many layered and complex issues related to violence and the missionary task. The introductory section contextualizes the problem historically and culturally. Section two presents biblical and theological foundations for engaging in ministry amid real and potential violence. The lion’s share of the book considers various ways that violence has influenced and continues to shape the church’s mission in the world. The final section looks at specific cultural settings, particularly within Africa and Europe. This volume equips readers to reflect intentionally on their lifestyles, strategies, and practices as they serve in physically risky settings.
