Item description for Campus Ministry: The Church Beyond Itself by Donald G. Shockley...
Donald G. Shockley's work is an earnest advocacy for recognizing and strengthening campus ministry as essential to the church's mission -- a "why to" rather than a "how to."
He presents a theology of campus mission based on the growing need for the church to reach beyond itself to renew its mission in the college community. The campus community offers a unique opportunity and setting for the church to practice evangelism, Christian education, and ethnic ministry.
He covers campus ministry from three major perspectives: History, Theology, and Mission. His threefold approach examines the power of past campus ministries (Christian societies, associations, movements), recognizes the possibilities for growth and learning in the campus environment, and explores campus ministry as an expression of the church in mission, emphasizing the unique opportunities available to the church on campuses. His work is a stimulating discussion of a vital area of the church in mission.
