A Time for Mission

The Challenge For Global Christianity
By Samuel Escobar
Out of Stock
Christian mission in the twenty-first century has become the responsibility of a global church. The heart of 'mission' is the drive to cross geographical, cultural and social barriers in order to share the good news of Jesus Christ with all peoples.
Drawing on his involvement in missionary work over many years, Samuel Escobar explores how the church spreads the Christian faith. God's Word forms the foundation for his reflections, while he uses insights from theological and historical studies as well as from the social sciences to gain a clearer understanding of the church's missionary calling. His stimulating and challenging analysis contributes significantly to a global evangelical dialogue on mission today and in the future.
A native of Peru, Samuel Escobar has lived with his family in several countries in the Americas and Europe. He is currently Professor of Missiology at the Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania, USA, and Theological Consultant for the Board of International Ministries (American Baptist Churches), in Valencia, Spain. He is the author of many publications, in four languages. He is President of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, and of the United Bible Societies.
