With the majority of the world’s Christians now living in the non-Western world, Christian mission has become a global movement. The mission of Western Christianity now faces the challenge of laying aside the preeminence and privilege it has long enjoyed in global Christian mission, and embracing a new role of servanthood in weakness alongside its sisters and brothers from Asia, South America, and Africa. Such a transformation in historic patterns in mission requires not just new strategies and techniques, but a renewal of its spirituality. How can the spirituality of Western mission be renewed? Learn more.

    Featured Recommendation from Esteemed Missions Leader

    Andrew Bush’s learning, not patronizing, approach to the Palestinian Christians, helps to tell the story of this much forgotten group of Palestinians in the simplicity and directness of their life; it invites readers to be enriched and motivated to action by their gospel faith as the author himself has been; and to tell the truth about the Palestinian situation, since truth respects no persons. In this era of renewed gospel mission, the gospel urges, impels Christians, through awareness of God’s incredible love (2 Cor 5:13-15) to zealously reconnect with God’s mission of love for all humanity and creation. Besides appreciating the stories of this book, told in their simplicity, each reader can identify the least in their communities (in the home, the church and society) from whom they can learn and journey with as brothers and sisters, in appreciation of the gospel faith of the Palestinian Christians and their openness to God’s mystery among them, as Dr Bush has authentically shared in the pages of this book. We congratulate him for this work deeply rooted in life lived in gospel faith and for his respectful, non patronizing, approach to Palestinian Christians, the least from whom he learns; and invites us to learn.
