Christian Mission, Contextual Theology, Prophetic Dialogue

Essays in Honor of Stephen B. Bevans, SVD

by Dale T. Irvin

While honoring Steve Bevans, SVD, a towering figure in the field of mis­siology and a longtime author of Orbis books on missiology, this book is de­signed as a textbook for classroom use. It is organized around the three main foci of Bevans’ theology: mission, contextual theologies, and dialogical theory.

Contributors are a who’s who of contemporary mission studies in global context and represent various Christian traditions throughout the global church.
