One of the best I've read from a third world (?) perspective dealing with the meaning and implication of God's mission in our times. I strongly recommend it to anyone who has not read any missiological or theological material from a non-Western perspective. Very refreshing and insightful!

A strong intro, centred on the historical development of the Lausanne movement, followed by Padilla's contributions. I definitely don't agree with every detail, but I definitely recommend this book, particularly to conservative evangelicals.

Fantastic book. Because the chapters are a series of essays, some are better than others. Also, because these were mostly written over 20 years ago some are a bit dated. This is why I've given it four stars. Overall, though, this is a thought-provoking and helpful analysis of mission especially within the Latin American context. Chapters 4, 5, and 9 were worth the price of the whole book.
