  • Third wave mission: Cultural, missiological, and theological dimensions
    • Authors: Schreiter; R. J.
      Pages: 5 - 16
      Abstract: Short-term mission, parish "twinning" (parish-to-parish relationships), and similar new forms of mission have come to be known as "third wave mission" in Roman Catholic circles. Third wave refers here to the mission that has been made possible by the third wave of globalization since the 15th century. This article explores the cultural contexts that shape this kind of mission, the impact this has on a more general understanding of mission, and what biblical and theological foundations might be sought to support it.

  • Evangelization is inculturation: A case study
    • Authors: Elizondo; V.
      Pages: 17 - 26
      Abstract: The evangelization of Mexico is a good case study in inculturation. This article presents the challenges, obstacles, and unexpected events that led to the birth of the new church in Mexico. It traces the principal elements of the native religious culture, presents the efforts to proclaim the gospel through their symbolic world, and Our Lady of Guadalupe as the unexpected event that led to the implantation of the gospel in Mexican soil.

  • The value of anthropology for missiological engagements with context: The
           case of witch accusations
    • Authors: Priest; R. J.
      Pages: 27 - 42
      Abstract: This article reviews an earlier history where anthropology came to be valued as playing a significant role within missiological education, and considers the more recent partial decline of professional anthropology within missiological institutions. It calls for a revaluing of anthropology for what it contributes to missiology and contextual theology. To illustrate the sorts of strength that anthropology brings to missiology, the article examines the old anthropological topic of witchcraft accusations, a topic that turns out to be remarkably contemporary because of its significant revitalized presence in churches in major regions of the world. The article considers contemporary dynamics where church leaders themselves participate in witch accusations, and attempts to showcase the sorts of considerations that an anthropological approach contributes to missiology.

  • Globalization and contextualization: Reframing the task of
           contextualization in the twenty-first century
    • Authors: Ott; C.
      Pages: 43 - 58
      Abstract: In the face of globalization, approaches to contextualization developed in the late 20th century must be expanded upon. Two main developments of globalization are examined and implications for contextualization are drawn. First, the increased interconnectivity of the global church and the McDonaldization of ministry imply that the focus of contextualization must be increasingly upon processing, evaluating, and rejecting or assimilating these global Christian influences. Second, globalization had led to the hybridization of cultures from which four implications are drawn. Contextualization must be focused more on understanding and responding appropriately to rapid social change now, and less on preserving or transforming the "traditional culture" of the past. Contextualization must be more radically rooted in biblical truth and identity. Contextualization must reevaluate the place of the catholicity of the church in relation to theological and ecclesial traditions. Finally, contextualization might be reconceived as a process of hybridization as opposed to homogenization or fragmentation.

  • Negotiating identity: Extending and applying Alan Tippett's model of
           conversion to believers from Muslim and Hindu backgrounds
    • Authors: Hibbert; R. Y.
      Pages: 59 - 72
      Abstract: This article begins by analysing how the model of conversion developed by Alan Tippett corrects some missionary blind spots. It explores the issue of identity negotiation in conversion and proposes an extension of Tippett’s model that addresses this issue. Challenges that Muslims and Hindus coming to faith in Christ face and pathways of response that they take in negotiating their new identity in Christ are then examined. These challenges and responses are illustrated by case studies from the Middle East, West Africa, Bangladesh, and India. Finally, implications of identity negotiation and of an extended version of Tippett’s model for cross-cultural workers serving new believers from Muslim and Hindu backgrounds are outlined.

  • Eugene Casalis and the French mission to Basutoland (1833-1856): A case
           study of Lamin Sanneh's mission-by-translation paradigm in
           nineteenth-century southern Africa
    • Authors: Beckner; W. B.
      Pages: 73 - 86
      Abstract: In his remarkable work, Translating the Message: The Missionary Impact on Culture, Lamin Sanneh claims that, from its beginnings at Pentecost, Christian mission, through its practice of vernacular language transcription and Bible translation, characteristically makes "the recipient culture the true and final locus of the proclamation, so that the religion arrives without the presumption of cultural rejection" (1989: 29). In this article I evaluate the Paris Evangelical Missionary Society’s mission to Basutoland (1833–56), spearheaded by Eugène Casalis and Thomas Arbousset, in light of Lamin Sanneh’s thesis with regard to the Christian gospel and its missionary propagation. We will pay particular attention to the missionaries’ attitudes toward the Basotho people, language, and culture; their ambiguous relationship to European colonialism; and their contribution to the founding of modern Lesotho. What were the primary factors of the French mission’s success in establishing an indigenous church, a self-propagating movement and ultimately in laying the groundwork for a nation?
