by: Mike Barnett (Editor), Michael Pocock (Editor)
Is Jesus really the only way? What is unique about Christ and missions? How can a new understanding of Jesus Christ bridge the gap between modern positivism and post-modern relativism? Can we learn from the model of Jesus how to be more effective mission workers? This volume (Number 12) of the annual Evangelical Missiological Society series offers answers to these questions and more as it discusses the clear and relevant communication of the centrality of Jesus Christ.
