2006 Christianity Today Award: Merit. Engaging Contemporary Issues and Trends. The dramatic changes that have taken place both in global society and in the church have implications for how the church does missions in the twenty-first century. These trends include the rise of postmodernism, the spiritual decline in the West and the advance of the gospel in the rest of the world, and the impact of technology on society and missions. This book (second in a series of three, see Introducing World Missions) is for the mission-minded church leader or lay person who wants to understand these trends. Each chapter identifies and evaluates a trend, examines it in light of Scripture, and proposes a practical response. Important terms are defined, and sidebars help readers think through the issues on their own.
The Changing Face of World Missions is the second volume in the Encountering Mission series, which identifies and interacts with twelve significant trends that today's student of missions needs to understand. The text is enhanced by numerous sidebars and case studies to foster individual and group reflection and discussion.
