About-

'Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.'
(Matt. 28: 19,20).

The words of Christ's Great Commission are simple, but the Christian responses have been marked by their extraordinary diversity. For all the souls that have been 'saved,' many lives have been lost.

So what is Christian mission? How did it start out, and what can it bring to our pluralistic modern society and culture?

Michael Nazir-Ali's book offers both a history and a theology. It tells the story of mission in each of the major churches--Oriental, Eastern, and Western--before considering the practice of mission in a variety of contemporary contexts.

With a third section identifying ways in which mission can be expressed--by Presence, Identification, Dialogue, Action, Evangelization, and Unity--From Everywhere to Everywhere is essential reading for all those who seek a truly global understanding of the Christian faith.
