Description

Given the unique religious climate of the twenty-first century and the challenges to Christian mission it poses, Christianity Encountering World Religions proposes a new model for interacting with people of other faiths

Given the unique religious climate of the twenty-first century and the challenges to Christian mission it poses, Christianity Encountering World Religions proposes a new model for interacting with people of other faiths. The authors term this model "giftive mission," since it is based on the metaphor of free gift.

Christianity is still the largest religion in the world, with almost two billion members. Let’s generously define failure as at least a century of mission effort that has resulted in less than 25 percent of the people in such cultures coming to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. But what do these numbers mean? Consider: never before have more Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim missionaries been sent to foreign fields. No predominantly Buddhist culture has ever been a Christian mission success, that is, with more than 25 percent of the people in the culture embracing Christianity. Korea has come the closest.

A brilliant and timely theology of mission, timed perfectly for the postmodern century in which we find . the Twenty-first Century Encountering Mission.

Terry Muck, Frances S Adeney, Frances Adeney. The current religious climate poses unique challenges to those engaged in mission. Thus the authors of this book propose a new, yet very biblical, model for interacting with people of other faiths. They term this model giftive mission, as it is based on the metaphor of free gift. We bear the greatest gift possible-the gospel message. Adopting this perspective not only has the potential for greater missionary success but also enables us to more closely imitate God's gracious activity in the world. The core of the book explores eleven practices that characterize giftive.

The current religious climate poses unique challenges to those engaged in mission. Thus the authors of this book propose a new, yet very biblical, model for interacting with people of other faiths. They term this model giftive mission, as it is based on the metaphor of free gift. We bear the greatest gift possible--the gospel message. Adopting this perspective not only has the potential for greater missionary success but also enables us to more closely imitate God's gracious activity in the world. The core of the book explores eleven practices that characterize giftive mission. Each practice is illustrated through the story of a figure from mission history who embodied that practice. Further discussion shows how to incorporate these practices in specific mission settings.

This book is a fascinating discussion of a mission model called giftive mission. It is very readable and practical. Yet, I have one thing against it - THE BINDING! Whatever form of binding this is, please Mr. or Mrs. Publisher - CHANGE it! You cannot open the book, especially in the back half of the book with out breaking the binding. I have unsuccessfully used all manner of weights and gadgets to try to hold the book open as I read it. Alas, I have had to crack the binding to even be able to read while holding with one hand.

I was never clear why if the bed of chasing the biblical metaphors for one made up by him, that of gift. Never clear on how to really implemented. Upset about his bias against Western society. The book had good examples of effective mission practices.

The subtitle is The Practice of Mission in the Twenty-First Century. The book begins with the world of religion today. Then it shows how Christianity originally spread, with nation after nation being Christianized. Various methods of carrying out mission are explained. The book ends with the recommendation of a method called Giftive mission, presenting or sharing the faith as a gift to native peoples. Gift giving involves giving, receiving and reciprocating. God freely gives the gift of grace. Our gift in mission is the story of Jesus. .

Excellent book. I had to read this for a course, and I am glad I did. There is a lot to think about and consider regarding world religions, and our personal views. We will get them all wrong if we do not remove the barriers we have up of personal biases and misinformed backgrounds. Muck helps us think through these issues.
