  • Exploring Integrative Ministerial Education in African Theological
           Institutions
    • Authors: Marilyn Naidoo
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      In religious Africa, theological education and ministerial formation are strategically important, as leadership development impacts church practice and supports community well-being and development. In a time of profound fragmentation, the great aspiration of “integration” is seen as a solution to connect and transform ministry training, with little consensus, however, about what the term means. Since African theological education needs to respond to training in innovative ways, this article reports on an African study on integrative theological education. It reveals the institutional and contextual challenges that impinge on educational practice and underlines integration as a key approach to professional education.

      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Despite the popularity of religion in African settings such as Ghana, reports of moral decline abound. This article reviews traditional, mission, and Christian theological perspectives of morality in Ghana. Using interviews, surveys, and content analysis of vehicle slogans, it examines what Ghanaians today consider to be values in terms of virtues and vices. It explores implications for Christian mission involvement in shaping morality in education and the public sphere.

    • Authors: Robert Holmes, Eunice Hong
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the worldview formation of North Koreans. While there is debate on what factors influence worldview formation in general, this article discusses two important factors that influence the worldview formation of North Koreans in particular, namely, Juche ideology and the traumatic suffering experienced by the populace. The article offers application points for ministry to and among North Koreans and concludes with suggestions for further research.

  • Missionaries and the Construction of Christian Homes: Examining the
           Formation of African Social Identities in Colonial Malawi
    • Authors: Dorothy Tembo
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Christian missions were introduced in Africa to bring commerce and civilization. Nevertheless, the modernizing ambitions of missions and the colonial government had considerable social and moral consequences, which are observable in the construction of a Christian family. This article will show that missionaries created a social revolution by prohibiting polygamy, leading to wives being treated as widows. Besides, the article will show that the construction of femininity and masculinity in mission schools was based on European culture. Eventually, some roles that in traditional society were reserved for men were defined as feminine tasks.

  • Ethiopian Qene (Traditional and Living Oral Poetry) as a Medium for
           Biblical Hermeneutics
    • Authors: Daniel Assefa, Tekletsadik Belachew
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Ethiopian Qene (traditional and living oral poetry) intertwines biblical interpretation with the observation of nature and critique of current events. It is always delivered as improvisation. It is performed in traditional schools, as well as at liturgical and social events. It contains metaphors, rhymes, and rhythm. It includes important values and is useful for theological studies and biblical hermeneutics.

  • The Adaptability of the Catholic Church’s Amani Mashinani Model in
           Kenya’s North Rift Conflicts
    • Authors: Susan Mbula Kilonzo, Kennedy Onkware
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores the dynamics that inform the structure of the Catholic’s Church Amani Mashinani model for conflict resolution. We explore the adaptation of the model in the processes of dialogue, forgiveness, reconciliation, retribution, and healing. Using two conflict situations, we illustrate the applicability of the model by church leadership and the community in resolving conflicts. The model borrows from Paul Lederach’s proposal of peacebuilding from below. From the findings, we conclude that the Amani Mashinani model can be adapted to resolve conflicts in diverse contexts. It has great potential for engaging those who take part in it.

  • Art, Faith, and Culture in Mission: The Legacy of Pulidindi Solomon Raj
    • Authors: B. S. Moses Kumar
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Pulidindi Solomon Raj (1921–2019), born in a tiny village in India, went through a “journey of ascents,” crossing national and denominational boundaries, scaling ministerial pinnacles, and attaining many laurels, all with the help of two little tools—his pen and his paintbrush. He achieved a global reputation for his artwork in diverse media, such as woodcuts, batiks, etchings, and icons; for his many essays presented in academic settings around the world; and for his seminal work on the “small” church movement in Andhra Pradesh and its sequel on indigenous mission.

    • Authors: Harriet Hill
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      In a world brimming over with trauma and suffering, what is the gospel' And what is the church' In this article, Harriet Hill explores the church as a fellowship of suffering, drawing insights from her years of experience in trauma healing. She describes the first “Healing the Wounds of Trauma” workshop in 2002 with pastors from war zones across Africa. Then she explores factors that prevent churches from engaging in this fellowship of suffering, countered with reasons the church is ideally placed to be a fellowship of suffering.

  • Christianity in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands
    • Authors: Emily DeWitt
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article documents the spread of Christianity throughout the Pacific, with a focus on the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). The project begins first with the pre-Christian Pacific, narrowing in on the pre-Christian CNMI, and follows the arrival and establishment of Christianity into the twenty-first century, noting the Spanish, German, and Japanese occupation of the islands and World War II. Through investigating secondary sources and conducting interviews with current leaders of churches of various denominations in the CNMI, I explore the ways in which Christianity has developed and grown since the time of its introduction to the islands.

  • The “Munich School” as a Corrective in World Christianity
    • Authors: Dyron B. Daughrity
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Klaus Koschorke and others from the so-called Munich School have added an important corrective to the study of World Christianity. With an emphasis on “South to South” connections, an insistence on “polycentric” origins, and an ever-present awareness of transcontinental cooperation in Christian missions, this school of thought is an extremely helpful and thought-provoking approach to World Christian studies that many in the English-speaking West are only recently learning about. Koschorke’s latest two books break new ground in the field and should be on the radar of all scholars of World Christianity.

  • BJP and Donyi-Polo: New Challenges to Christianity in Arunachal Pradesh
           and Northeast India
    • Authors: Dyron B. Daughrity
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Located on the disputed border with China, Arunachal Pradesh is the most remote of India’s northeastern states. Christianity is growing there—from 1 percent in 1971 to 30 percent in 2011—but that number may have reached a plateau. Arunachal Pradesh is undergoing rapid sociocultural change. While Hinduism is not well-established in the region, there is tremendous interest in a relatively new religion called Donyi-Polo. Some Hindus argue Donyi-Polo is actually a branch of Hinduism, and they are having some success in making this claim. This article explores the changing religious, political, and cultural dynamics of Arunachal Pradesh.

  • The Synod on Young People, a Laboratory of Synodality
    • Authors: Nathalie Becquart
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      The Fifteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, held in October 2018 with the theme “Young People, Faith, and Vocational Discernment,” was truly a profound experience of “walking together” under the guidance of the Spirit. Through a process including two years of preparation with local consultations and a Pre-Synod with three hundred youth from all over the world, the church has been deeply listening to the young adults between the ages of sixteen and twenty-nine. Thus the church has understood clearly how synodality is truly a key to the proclamation and transmission of the faith today.

  • Translation in the Twenty-First Century: Who Needs Scripture'
    • Authors: Michel Kenmogne
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Addressing the question “Who needs Scripture'” begins with a reevaluation of assumptions about the function of Bible translation. The differing interactions of several generations with mother-tongue Scriptures and the reality of multilingualism mandate a reconsideration of translation needs, assessment, strategies, products, and media in response to the context, realities, and needs of each language community. Collaborative mechanisms are required to provide appropriate responses to the new assumptions. Participation in the missio Dei compels us in faith to acknowledge new realities and seek God’s guidance toward more effective contributions in Bible translation in the twenty-first century.

  • Kingdom Come: The Eschatology of Missionary Maps
    • Authors: David Onnekink
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Missionary maps were a ubiquitous feature of the missionary movement but have received little systematic attention. This article investigates the eschatological dimension of such maps through a review of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Dutch missionary bulletins. It shows how missionary maps visualized the spatial march through history of the kingdom of God toward the fulfilling of time. Two eschatological spatial metaphors were used in connection with missionary maps: the (mission) field and the kingdom. The overall purpose of this article is to underscore the value of maps for missionary research.

      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Women are critical to the church’s mission across Africa. In northern Nigeria, women have played important roles in the church’s mission to Muslims. Current trends indicate that Christian widows are resisting remarriage to devote themselves to Christian mission. This article argues that Christian widows are central to Christian mission in northern Nigeria. How do Christian widows view their roles in Christian mission within northern Nigeria' What roles are Christian widows playing toward fulfilling God’s mission in northern Nigeria' This article identifies two roles Christian widows are playing in Christian mission and concludes with missiological implications of this factor.

      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article offers an alternative to Christian witness and development in Muslim-majority nations. It reviews twelve Ibero-American projects in such nations in which believers have found ways to (1) live out their faith in a transparent but nonthreatening way, (2) communicate a holistic gospel through various projects, (3) evangelize in a manner that is open, contextualized, and nonproselytizing, (4) contribute to social holistic transformation, and (5) encourage local expressions of Christian churches.

    • Authors: Jared Bok
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      The release of the 22nd edition of the Mission Handbook (2017) has provided rich opportunities for scholars and practitioners to learn more about the current state of global missions from North America. Based on data from all twenty-two of the Handbook’s print editions, this article summarizes broad trends from 1951 to 2016. These include an overall increase in the number of agencies, even as founding rates have been declining; an overall growth in overseas budgets; the increasing prominence of evangelical agencies that are not denominationally affiliated; and a mixed series of patterns among core and peripheral ministry activities.

  • Struggles of Korean Second-Generation Leaders: Leaving the Immigrant
           Church
    • Authors: Eunice Hong
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      The Korean immigrant church has served as not only a religious institution but also a cultural base for the first generation of immigrants, who have a common interest in keeping their traditional values. Such an emphasis, however, has resulted in conflicts between the first and second generations. The purpose of this study is to explain the struggles of second-generation Korean American leaders that led them away from the first-generation immigrant church. Two main elements of the Asian culture emerged as the source of the intercultural identity struggle: (1) striving to maintain the honor balance and (2) struggling with due order.

  • The Political and Economic Vision of Pope Francis: Implications for
           Philippine Church Mission
    • Authors: Jerry D. Imbong
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Pope Francis, whose concern for the poor has earned him the nickname the “slum pope” in Latin America, has made it clear that no society can succeed that marginalizes the poor. Drawing on the concrete conditions of Philippine society, the pope suggests that mission should not be detached from the pastoral programs that seek to address the structural causes of poverty and inequality. Pope Francis’s political and economic vision resonates with the Philippine church’s program of “new evangelization,” which seeks sustainable and integral development and a radical change in lifestyles, modes of production, and consumption.

      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Every interreligious encounter produces a cross-fertilization of ideas and values. To what extent is the Christian-African indigenous religious encounter mutually impacting' And what aspects of the African worldview make it receptive to Christianity' This article addresses these questions by engaging the underexplored phenomena of African literature, music, and prayer as sources of African values and spirituality, as well as of Christian theology. Through in-depth interviews, focused group discussions, participant-observation, along with archival data and African literary works, it argues that the wealth of African metaphors and values therein richly express African spirituality, values, and Christian theology.

      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Sequential explanatory mixed research was conducted among Ethiopian evangelical churches to discover the relationship between religious support and human flourishing. Data were collected from members of five of the largest evangelical churches in five major cities of Ethiopia, using Religious Support Scale and Flourishing Scale, followed by focus-group discussions and structured interviews of church leaders of these five churches. Descriptive statistics and simultaneous multiple regression indicated that religious support contributes to psychosocial well-being for church members. This finding is supported by the ensuing qualitative data analysis, which showed the understanding and contribution of church leaders toward well-being.

      First page: 133
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Africa has witnessed an increase of clergy who favor faith healing but have little appreciation for modern medicine. The intersection between African traditional healing and faith healing remains unclear, with most curricula in theological and Bible schools failing to address these fundamental issues. Research was conducted to establish the intersection between faith, traditional, and biomedical healing. The findings show that faith healing is practiced by nearly three-fourths of the respondents and that African Instituted Churches give relatively more attention to practices of faith healing than do other denominations.

      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines views of Batswana faith healers on medication and Christian medical mission in a context where official health policy generally does not recognize alternative health systems. It is based on fieldwork among Batswana designed to establish the impact of religion on those who seek healing and on health providers. Overall, the study established that faith healers do not discourage their clients from taking modern medication. They strongly believe, however, that faith healing contributes significantly to healing and health and needs to be recognized in the country’s health policy; they support and encourage collaboration between themselves and modern medical practitioners.

      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      The present work probes the ethnocultural psychology of African people in the creative negotiations of wellness across healing spaces. Using data drawn from ethnographic method, the research engages the cultural dynamics in the emerging ethnomedical conversations among 250 sick clients of African healing shrines, over 50 contemporary practitioners of African healing shrines, 40 biomedical doctors and nurses, and 40 church workers/Christian healers in Nigeria and Ghana. The findings of this research suggest that there are dialogic paths of ecumenical interaction, active routes of referral systems, and social contours of transborder spiritualities across contemporary African healing spaces.

  • Language Practices as Religious Innovation: The Case of Pentecostal
           Charismatic Churches in Xenophobic Contexts

      First page: 167
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      In the authors’ recent case-study research of migrant-dominated Pentecostal charismatic churches (PCCs) in the South African cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town, language emerged as a prominent feature of religious practice, suggesting a positive correlation between experiences of xenophobia and religious innovation. This perspective is developed through the identification and discussion of two interlinked themes that surfaced from a closer analysis of the findings: (1) belonging and diversity and (2) evangelization. These two themes are assessed through the prism of religious innovation.

  • Innovation or Competition' A Critical Analysis of Contemporary Divine
           Healing Practices of Pentecostal Africans in Africa and the Diaspora
    • Authors: Robert Kuloba Wabyanga, Henrietta Nyamnjoh, Abel Ugba
      First page: 177
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines current practices of divine healing of Pentecostal Africans. It provides insights into current developments by using the explanatory concepts of innovation, competition, and agency. The article draws on data obtained through an interdisciplinary, transnational, and multisite investigation of eight Pentecostal churches in Kampala, Nairobi, Cape Town, and London. Methods used included ethnographic observation, visual ethnography, and semistructured interviews. Pentecostal Africans in Africa and the diaspora, this article argues, are simultaneously reenacting centuries-old faith-informed healing practices and creatively reinventing aspects of these practices to assert their relevance in a postmodern world characterized by religious plurality, competition, and secularism.

  • The Churches, Gukurahundi, and Forgiveness in Zimbabwe
    • Authors: Ezra Chitando, Nisbert T. Taringa
      First page: 187
      Abstract: International Bulletin of Mission Research, Ahead of Print.
      Gukurahundi, the mass killing of predominantly isiNdebele-speaking citizens in the Matabeleland and Midlands Provinces in Zimbabwe by predominantly chiShona-speaking military personnel, remains a challenging issue in Zimbabwe. Despite calls by the post-Mugabe administration for individuals and institutions to address Gukurahundi with courage and openness, progress has been slow. This article explores some of the key themes that have emerged from the churches’ engagement with Gukurahundi in Zimbabwe in the context of reflecting on forgiveness. These include silence, feelings of deep anger and pain, calls for an apology, and appeals to indigenous concepts and practices.
