Mission in the New Testament articulates Scriptural teachings on mission from a contemporary American Evangelical standpoint, contributing a fresh statement of the biblical foundations of mission and serving as a catalyst for completion of the church’s universal mission in this generation.

After investigating the historical background of the idea of mission in the Hebrew Scriptures, inter-testamental Judaism, the life of Jesus and the beginnings of the church, the book proceeds in a roughly canonical order through the New Testament. Essays analyze the works of Paul, the Synoptic Gospels, Acts of the Apostles, the General Epistles, and Revelation.

While well-versed in the historical-critical method of biblical interpretation, editors and contributors alike offer a cogent argument for recovering the “missional horizon” of the New Testament. They also emphasize that “mission” today can no longer be defined geographically and that non-Western churches are assuming major leadership roles in Christian world mission.
