Item description for The Message of Missions: The Glory of Christ in All Time and Space (Bible Speaks Today) by Howard Peskett & Vinoth Ramachandra...

Overview
Mission is not an optional "extra" for those few volunteers who "like that sort of thing." The church is called to be God's agents and representatives, a community shaped by the cross and mandated to reproduce and grow so that Jesus Christ may be more and more glorified. This exposition of fifteen passages of Scripture observes mission from the underside, giving attention to the connections between mission and suffering and even martyrdom, and to the historical importance of the church's conducting mission out of weakness. All Christian mission has its fountainhead in the God revealed in Scripture, who sent his Son for us, sends his Spirit to us and summons all people to himself. In a unique East-West partnership, Howard Peskett and Vinoth Ramachandra explore the missional privilege and responsibility of the church: to testify by its words and deeds to Jesus Christ, God's unique Son, crucified, risen and ascended.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Missions: The Glory of Christ in All Time and Space (Bible Speaks Today)?

Extremely Helpful!  Nov 4, 2005
A truly amazing textbook! Perfect for teaching a genuinely biblical theology of mission. It scores high on doctrinal orthodoxy, exegetical scholarship and apologetic/missionary engagement in the contexts of contemporary global-local realities. A rare combination! It has a defiantly high Christology (YES!), a breath-taking appreciation of the Old Testament's all-too-neglected treasure-trove of teaching for a fully integrated Christian worldview, a surprisingly refreshing exposition of familiar New Testament texts, and an authentically 'global Christian' perspective that holds so much promise for Christianity in the 21st century. This is the kind of Bible-sourced, intelligent, horizon-expanding reading that young Christians worldwide need to read for their theological formation, to live and preach the Gospel of Jesus as Lord and Saviour to their grim and jaded generation. As a teacher of theology, I am thrilled to recommend it!
 
Ramblings, little to do with Missions  Jul 21, 2005
I have been tasked to translate this book to my native language. I approached it with high hopes, having loved books in the expositive sections of this same series. Also, I highly respected its editors.

What a disillusion! This book has actually little to do with missiology. Rather the authors indulge in long ramblings of ill-informed, leftist economics, geopolitics and political correctness. They do strive to be orthodox in their faith, but then they use all the religious liberals as sources and end up in verbal contortions to disguise the liberal influence...

A waste.
