Taking his starting point from Lesslie Newbigin’s analysis of the contemporary historical and cultural context, David Smith explores issues in, and challenges to, the practice of Christian mission and witness today. He surveys the modern movement, starting with the World Missionary Conference in Edinburgh in 1910, examines critical issues concerning the gospel and culture, reflects on mission in the context of violence and suffering, and explores the “translation” of the gospel for a globalized world. He also examines how Scripture was used to justify the political and economic expansion of European power at the dawn of the modern world, and argues that mission today demands both a new hermeneutic and a revised theology of mission, within which Paul’s letter to the Romans will play a significant role.
