Transforming Mission

In this series I reflect on a missional theological method, focusing especially on the methodological importance of the missiological conception of worldview. My thesis is:

The conception of worldview developed through interdisciplinary theological study of and for Christian participation in God’s mission is the best theoretical basis of a theological method for a movement marked by commitments to a teleological, participatory vision of the Triune God’s mission.
