A Missiology of the Road
Early Perspectives in David Bosch’s Theology of Mission and Evangelism
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Now meet Bosch at work, Bosch before Transforming Mission, Bosch in the grist of the mill of his forming vision. Kevin Livingston is a savvy guide who provides clear exposition of Bosch's earlier work, forged as it was during the years of struggle to end South Africa's apartheid policies. He demonstrates effectively the continuing relevance of Bosch's missionary ecclesiology for churches of the twenty-first century."
--George R. Hunsberger, Western Theological Seminary
"All of us who have been influenced by David Bosch will find this book compelling reading. Kevin Livingston draws on his encyclopedic knowledge of Bosch and his work to take us deep into those influences--personal, spiritual, professional, theological, and political--that shaped him into the person who wrote Transforming Mission. This book is essential reading for anyone seeking a deeper, more textured understanding of Bosch."
--John P. Bowen, Wycliffe College
"Livingston has performed an immense service by taking us behind Transforming Mission and showing where it came from: the agonies of apartheid South Africa, the unhappy warfare of theological camps labeled 'ecumenical' and 'evangelical,' the quest for a concrete expression of the church as it is depicted in the Scriptures, and from faithful discipleship while engaging with church and society as they are. This book . . . is a considerable achievement."
--Andrew F. Walls, University of Edinburgh
