By Fergus King
A Missional Introduction to the New Testament starts with an overview of the environment from which it came utilizing language and worldviews. Questions for reflection on missional ethos and behaviour conclude each chapter and invite readers to translate the message of the New Testament into their own contexts.
Typically, a New Testament introduction deals with the usual stuff of introductions—authorship, readership, date, genre, and specific content of the books of the New Testament. This is not one of those usual introductions. In A Missional Introduction to the New Testament, Reverend Dr Fergus King addresses the typical topics while presenting a New Testament introduction with a missional perspective. This volume is intended to explore what the New Testament teaches about how to be missional while embracing the sending of God—the “missio Dei.”Publication information
