For decades now, ethnic diasporas have played a critical role in spreading Christianity to new regions, while reshaping the faith in traditional centers of belief. It is extremely valuable, then, to have such an impressive and wide-ranging collection of essays on this epochal phenomenon. The book impresses by its truly global diversity of expertise, and the uniformly high quality of contributions. Indispensable.

This book makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of a complex global phenomenon. Written by leading thinkers in the burgeoning field of 'diaspora missiology', these essays offer collectively an informed and interdisciplinary view of the world through the lens of the global diasporas. The editors have achieved in this book a balance and breadth that suits the subject at hand and situates the reader for further study of this vital aspect of human flourishing in the twenty-first century.

In an era of unprecedented global migratory flows, the extraordinary potential of migrant movement for missionary action has emerged as a fascinating and fruitful area of research and theological reflection. In Global Diasporas & Mission readers are presented with bold missiological assessments of the phenomenon by an impressive global cast of scholars whose approaches encompass the theological, biblical, and historical. This rich compendium of analyses and insights covers tremendous ground and showcases the multidisciplinary nature of the growing discourse on migration and mission.
