Christian mission is no longer a matter of missionaries from the West going to the rest of the world. Rather, the growth of Christianity in Latin America, Africa and parts of Asia is eclipsing that of the Western church. In the third millennium of the Christian era, Christian mission is truly global, with missionaries from all places going to all peoples. Veteran missiolog ...more

Samuel Escobar's book is really an introduction to global missions. He writes about the growth of the church in the global south in the 20th century (chapter 1) before giving a brief overview of the history of mission (chapter 2). The third chapter focuses on globalization and how this has changed, and is changing, missions.

This is honestly a very poorly written book. I am astounded at those who found it to be relevant or interesting. I was determined to give Escobar the benefit of the doubt that it would improve, but I was let down. Page after page I was left with no real sense of any meaning on most pages and very little organization or outline to the book. Maybe I have some growing and learning to do before I am ready to receive this book; I don't know. It's not a page turner by any means.

This book made me realize how I think it is important to join a mission organization that has a global perspective. I like that it gives you insights to think outside of the Western mindset. It shows you there is more to missions than what the western world sends out. I think I will try to find a missions organization such as OM that is broader in perspective and has many countries represented.

Escobar has a helpful historical perspective for those, like me, who are being introduced to missiology. His is a powerful and revolutionary perspective for most in the traditional Protestant American church context to consider and be challenged by.
