About-

This book argues for the primacy of spirituality in the practice of mission. Since God is the primary agent of mission and God works through the power of the Holy Spirit, it is through openness to the Spirit that mission finds its true character and has its authentic impact. This is demonstrated today particularly by movements of Christian faith in the global south which carry the good news to the heart of communities in every part of the world. Originating in the Edinburgh 2010 mission study project, the essays assembled in this volume show that today there is a renewal of the missionary impetus of the churches which is marked by its spiritual character. Here fresh motivation for mission is being found, moving people of faith to share the good news of Jesus Christ both within their own communities and by crossing frontiers to take the message to new contexts.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Drawing on the rich, wide and varied experiences of scholars from the global South, this volume attempts to address spirituality and discipleship as an important emphasis in contemporary mission. I recommend this book to anyone seeking to know and understand what is happening on the mission front in this generation.
-Opoku Onyinah, Chancellor of Pentecost University College, Chairman of the Church of Pentecost and President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council.

...a contribution to grasp the significance of spirituality for the quality and direction of Christian mission in the 21st Century.
Maria Aranzazu Aguado, Former Roman Catholic Consultant in the World Council of Churches

This book opens up a new frontier in missiology. Rich both in intellectual rigour and empathetic understanding, it will prove to be a formative text for missional spirituality in world Christianity.
