Product description

Given the essentially practical nature of mission, it is surprising that there has often been such a disconnect between those studying mission theoretically, and those involved in it practically.

"Missional Conversations" introduces the reader to key themes in contemporary mission through global conversations between theory and praxis.

Exploring emergent themes in missiology, the book takes the form of a conversation between reflective practitioners - both those in academia and with those who are practically engaged.

Product Reviews

'Cathy Ross and Colin Smith have put together an amazing collection of essays in these pages. Not only does their conversational method match their understanding of mission. Their content is fresh, exciting, imaginative, and in some cases groundbreaking. This is a pioneering book in every sense of the word. It's certainly the best collection of essays in missiology that I have read in a long time.' -- Steve Bevans, SVD, Louis J. Lozbetak, SVD Professor of Mission and Culture, Emeritus Catholic Theological Union, Chicago 

‘At its best the story of Church Mission Society since its founding in 1799 has been one of sustained, reflective, practical missiology – ‘a dialogue between theory and practice’ indeed. This collection of essays by many members and friends of the CMS Community stands in exactly that tradition. As such I am delighted to commend it.’ -- Canon Philip Mounstephen, Executive Leader, CMS 

'Missiology is always contextual and in the twenty-first century, that context keeps changing. Missional Conversations brings us up-to-date and names key issues for mission today that were not mainstream even a decade ago, such as migration and economic disparity. It matches these with new ways of engaging in mission that are more and more emerging from Majority World contexts. The global conversation is rich and fertile.' -- Kirsteen Kim, Fuller Theological Seminary, USA
