Mission--a driving force in the long Christian story--today is often cast as the embarrassing relative of tall-steeple religiosity. In our wider culture it's now tucked in the endnotes of book-club histories or forms the ghostlike ellipses in the six o'clock news. But in Christian Mission Today, Michael Goheen brings the vibrant history, motivation and challenges of Christian mission to the fore. Through the centuries Christian mission has always been recalibrating, retooling and reevangelizing. It has repeatedly taken surprising turns as it is carried along by the Spirit of God. Goheen's introduction to mission's biblical, theological and historical dimensions engages the present and anticipates the future. As he unfolds the major issues of the global and urban, the pluralistic and wholistic contexts of mission today, he lays the ground for engaging in God’s great kingdom enterprise. This full-scale text incorporates the keen missional insights of Lesslie Newbigin, David Bosch and other formative thinkers. It will be a valued resource not only for those involved crosscultural contexts but also for those engaged in reevangelizing the West.

Michael W. Goheen (PhD, Utrecht) is theological director and scholar-in-residence in missional theology at the Missional Training Center in Phoenix. He is also professor of missional theology at Newbigin House of Studies and Jake and Betsy Tuls Professor of Missiology at Calvin Theological Seminary.Goheen earned his PhD at the University of Utrecht, writing his dissertation on Lesslie Newbigin's missionary ecclesiology. Beyond his academic appointments at a number of universities and colleges, he has served as a church planter and pastor to several churches and is currently a member of the Christian Reformed Church.He is the author of several books, including The Drama of Scripture (with Craig Bartholomew), published by Baker in 2004, and A Light to the Nations, published by Baker in 2011.His articles have appeared in Theology Today, Missiology, Mission Studies and Missionalia.
