Joining in with the Spirit is an accessible introduction to mission studies - the history, theology and issues of mission, which is up-to-date and supported by contemporary scholarship. It also offers a theological framework for mission, which applies both globally and locally, to help the reader discern the movement of the Spirit of Christ among the many other spirits of this world. This text illustrates the impact of the 1910 Edinburgh world missionary conference and shows how the churches in Britain as a part of a much wider movement of the Spirit of Christ that is world Christianity.
Kirsteen Kim's lively study is both accessible and scholarly. This book affirms mission as the work of the Spirit and, rejecting traditional Euro-centric approaches, insists that local mission is most effectively viewed through the lens of the world church. The joy of this book is that the reader is introduced to fresh voices not usually heard in such studies: the challenge is responding to them.
