SUBTITLE: Pictures from chosen New Testament literature
FORMAT: Electronic book in the ePub format
SUMMARY: Missionary Perspectives presents a picture as to how the New Testament treats the missionary challenges for congregations and the church in different contexts. The authors offer perspectives on mission from the following New Testament writings: Matthew, Mark, Luke-Acts, Gospel of John, Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians 1 and 2, Timothy, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 1 to 3 John, and Revelation.
Missionary Perspectives succeeds in showing that different New Testament writings treat the theme of mission differently. The first section consists of four articles describing the framework for the present conversation on mission and the identity of the church in the world. The second section of the book consists of 17 articles focusing on 17 New Testament books.
