I don't even know where to begin in remarking on this remarkable book. This should be the standard missiology (study of Christian missions) textbook everywhere from now on. Drawing on a deep history of theological reflection as well as his wide range of experiences among Christians in the Majority World (i.e., outside of 'the West'), Tennent offers a comprehensive treatment of virtually everything in missions, firmly rooting the structure of the book in the doctrine of the Trinity and in his conviction that Christian missions are our participation in God's own mission. I particularly enjoyed the chapter devoted to conceptually translating the Christian message from one cultural setting to another, and the reminder that people of different cultures have widely different questions that can become pivotal for necessary theological reflection.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0825438837, Hardcover)

This unique text is arranged in three parts according to the Trinity's roles, relationships, and activity. Tennent questions whether missions as currently conceptualized is adequate and he challenges the reader by building the book around key theological foundations such as "mission dei" and the "new creation" vision for the global church. This volume will call and enable the reader to understand how missions is biblically and theologically basic to Christianity, and how missions is essential to living out an abundant and impassioned life.
