Overview
The rise of postmodernism; spiritual decline in the West; growth of Christianity in the Third World; the impact of global technology---our world is changing!

Includes case studies and sidebars. 432 pages, softcover from Baker.

Publishers Description
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.
"The Changing Face of 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Changing Face of World Missions, The: Engaging Contemporary Issues and Trends (Encountering Mission)?

Good stuff  Apr 17, 2008
Good book. It goes into different trends and contemporary issues when it comes to missions. Some of the subjects covered are globalization, postmodernism, contextualization, majority world christianity, etc...It is written by evangelical missiologists from the west. This is an awesome book. Get it.
 
Change your worldview!  Feb 23, 2006
If you think you're fairly well informed re: church and mission issues, think again. The authors of this book cover the mega issues of our time and the challenges we face as Christians in addressing them. I'll read this book again before I'm ready to talk about it, there's so much here.
