Description

by Christopher J. H. Wright, John R. Franke, Jonathan Leeman, Stanley N. Gundry, Peter J. Leithart and Jason S. Sexton
Publisher: Zondervan

This book articulates various evangelical views regarding the church's mission and provides a healthy, vigorous, and gracious debate on this controversial topic. In a helpful Counterpoints format, this volume demonstrates the unique theological frameworks, doctrinal convictions, and missiological conclusions that inform and distinguish the views:

  • Soteriological Mission: Jonathan Leeman
  • Participatory Mission: Christopher Wright
  • Contextual Mission: John Franke
  • Ecumenical-Political Mission: Peter Leithart

Each of the four contributors is to answer the same key questions based on their biblical interpretations and theological convictions. What is your biblical-theological framework for mission? How does your definition of mission inform your understanding of the church's mission? How does the Mission of God and Kingdom of God relate to the mission of the church? What is the gospel? How does your view on the gospel inform the mission of the church? How do verbal proclamation of the gospel, discipleship, corporate worship, caring for the poor, social justice, restoring shalom, developing culture, and international missions fit into the church's mission?

The interaction between the contributors will help readers get a clearer picture of where the differences lie and why different conclusions are drawn and provide a fresh starting point for discussion and debate of the church's mission.
