Mission for Diversity

Exploring Christian Mission in the Contemporary World

Edited by: Elochukwu E. Uzukwu

In this multi-cultural and multi-religious world, do Christian mission studies have any place in the academic realm? What theological possibilities and practical insights did Vatican II create for missiology? In this book, experts from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, and North America respond to these questions. They explore "mission" as "intercultural studies," and they adopt decolonial thinking to privilege knowledges from the margins of our wounded world. Themes, such as interculturality, interreligious dialogue and inculturation, justice, peace building, and reconciliation, expand Vatican II to celebrate "mission" among and with the nations.
