Together towards Life

Mission and Evangelism in Changing Landscapes--With a Practical Guide

Edited by: Jooseop Keum

As an excellent tool for Christians everywhere to think freshly about Christian mission, Together Towards Life presents a new affirmation for the ecumenical mission in full, along with a complete guide and a host of other study materials. Rooted deeply in Christian Trinitarian theology, this mission affirmation proposes a true paradigm shift in the Christian understanding of mission and evangelism. It incorporates significant insights about the rapidly changing contemporary context, the relevance of marginalized peoples to mission, and the larger purposes of mission and evangelism in God's own mission of love to the world. As a practical guide, the book enables congregations, study groups, missionaries, and mission agencies to probe the distinctive and challenging vision of 'together towards life.' An accompanying DVD incorporates videos and documents on the history of Christian mission and the process by which the new ecumenical affirmation has developed. [Rev. Dr. Jooseop Keum is Secretary of the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, World Council of Churches, Geneva.]
