The Mission of God: Studies in Orthodox and Evangelical Mission

This important volume is the fruit of three years’ work by Orthodox and Evangelical scholars and two major international consultations.

Recommendations:

This is a ‘must read’ collection of essays that are rooted in prayer, in the Scriptures and in the rich histories of two very different traditions … giving the reader an excellent glimpse into the ways in which Orthodox and Evangelical Christians around the globe have come together to participate in God’s transforming mission. I highly recommend it for all pastors, seminary and Bible college students and staff.

Dr. C. Rosalee Velloso Ewell, PhD, Executive Director, Theological Commission, World Evangelical Alliance

The wealth of material in this extraordinary symposium is indicated by the widely dispersed backgrounds of its contributors. I cannot think of a comparable example in which the evangelical mission of the Church is placed so firmly in the varying contexts of theology, ethics, exegesis, ecumenism, and spiritual transformation.

Fr. Patrick Henry Reardon, Orthodox Pastor in Chicago and Senior Editor of Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity

Diversity, quality and experience of the contributors assure the reader that this compendium points the way toward a future of greater understanding and desirable partnerships in the mission of the Triune God in our complex world. Ecumenism at its best!

Dr. Peter Kuzmic Eva B. and Paul E. Toms Distinguished Professor of World Missions and European Studies, Gordon Conwell Seminary
