Item description for Into The Far Country: A Theology Of Mission For An Age Of Violence by Tom Stuckey...
Overview The Great Commission remains an abiding challenge for Christians. What kind of an understanding of God is behind our thinking about mission. The author takes account of the Western Church's continued failure to protect teh environment, the escalation of violence and tribalism, ideologies of exclusion and of the increasing gap between the rich and the poor. Tom Stuckey invites us to make a spiritual journey into a 'far country', in order to rediscover our missionary task. Reflecting in the biblical theme of covenant, he dares to suggest that the ultimate purpose of mission is the liberation of God.
Publishers Description Each theology degree has undergraduate components in mission; this text is aimed specifically at anyone studying or researching the area. The author begins by questioning the validity of the contemporary mission and suggests that experience further afield would be of value.
