This volume is the outcome of the multinational case studies and responses presented at KGMLF’s 2017 consultation held in Sokcho, Korea, on the subject “Migration, Human Dislocation, and Accountability in Missions.” The studies presented deal with significant issues in Christian mission and address the case of North Korean migrants, the sufferings of Iraqis fleeing from war, African refugees, Syrian refugees in Lebanon, overseas Filipino workers, the situation of refugees in Europe, and other refugee cases.
We know about Korean Christianity’s strong commitmentto contemporary mission and evangelism but this book in afascinating way links it to the pressing issue of unprecedentedmigration and human dislocation. The case studies make itrich and insightful, calling the reader and the universal churchto account in new and dramatic ways. The international panelof presenters and responders truly represents mission fromeverywhere to everywhere—an essential dialogue for missiologyin the twenty-first century.
