2010Boston: The Changing Contours of World Mission and Christianity
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This fascinating record of one of the leading events marking the centenary of Edinburgh 1910 deals with key issues for mission studies and world Christianity today. Ecclesially diverse and gender balanced, it also weaves together both local (Boston) interest with input from around the globe. There are some excellent papers on the history and theology of mission, and the relative space given to the voices of students--who are also practitioners--is particularly welcome."
--Kirsteen Kim, Professor of Theology and World Christianity, Leeds Trinity University College, UK
"Comprehensive and forward-looking, this book is an important resource for theological faculty and students, church leaders, and people in the pews interested in the future direction of Christian mission and world Christianity. Ecumenical and pluriphonic, each chapter offers new insights and adds richness to the whole. I highly recommend it."
Kwok Pui-lan, author of Postcolonial Imagination and Feminist Theology
"This volume represents a worthy, thought-provoking commemoration of Edinburgh 1910. The emphasis on student participation at Boston 2010 is particularly significant. Many of the students at Edinburgh went on to become leaders of the twentieth century church. One can only hope that the many students who participated in this conference will do the same for our own century."
--Stephen Bevans, Louis J. Luzbetak, SVD, Professor of Mission and Culture at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago
