"A clear survey and analysis of issues confronting missiology globally. [This] work should be read and studied not only in the West but also in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, where missiological education is rapidly growing. This book is a very welcome aid to us all in facing one of the crucial challenges of the coming century."
