A Theology of Mission

Challenges and Opportunities in Northeast Asia

Gaylan Kent Mathiesen

Encounters with Christianity Series

Those called to proclaim the gospel in Northeast Asia face a seemingly impregnable wall of culture that is highly resistant to their message. The author tackles the question of why the great outlay of human and material resources over the centuries has not produced a greater receptivity to the gospel. He seeks answers in the theological categories of missio Dei, ecclesia Dei, and regnum Dei. Biblical, doctrinal, and theological considerations as well as church history and reformation history inform this study. “Where does mission originate? What is God’s intent for the church? As God comes into the world in love, what does his coming look like? Where does one find God’s presence and how does one discern and build on that presence?” These important questions for the articulation of mission are the foci of this book.
