Believing in the Future: Toward a Missiology of Western Culture

Front Cover
Gracewing Publishing, 1995 - Christianity and culture - 69 pages
Following an analysis of the postmodern world, the legacy of the Enlightenment, and Christian faith into a postmodern age, Professor Bosch sketches the contours of a missiology of Western culture. The latter includes considerations of mission as social ethics, mission and the Third World, and God-talk in an age of reason. A concluding section summarizes the five ingredients of a missiology of Western culture, that is, that it include an ecological dimension, that it be countercultural and ecumenical and contextual, andthat it be primarily a ministry of the laity.

A bit dated now but a nice primer on missiological framework in a post-Christian world. Bosch can say things succinctly and walk you through complex ideas other bumble around in.
