A silent obstacle has been happening for it slow now: an ongoing eclipse in undertaking, wherein our knowing of what it's has been obscured via the idols of our Christian passions and biblical views. anyplace that obstacle has been perceived, full of life responses were proposed and lots more and plenty has been performed within the identify of, and for the sake of, undertaking. notwithstanding, these responses themselves have usually overshadowed the matter of the id of Christian challenge. And so we stay within the darkness of figuring out project as we consistently have performed. We even impose those understandings onto God--calling Him a "missionary" God--and we venture our idols of "mission" onto the sacred be aware. the following, then, is an uncomfortable yet useful critique of recent challenge, and the floor from which it has grown.

Here, too, is the proposition of a higher foundation for realizing what challenge is, and for outworking it aright in all of our lives. by way of articulating a brand new paradigm for Christian venture, the eclipsed challenge of undertaking in challenge may have been resolved, and the missional capability of an international church--dynamic with the very Spirit and presence of the dwelling God--will be released.
