Based on a Trinitarian view of mission, Invitation to World Missions derives its structure from the role of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the mission of God. Developing the importance of New Creation theology, this work shows how God planned the mission, then enacted it, and ultimately empowered it. Being a provocative but essential textbook for mission courses, it covers the basics and then some, including chapters on megatrends, culture, and pluralism. Most of all it reshapes the discussion of mission in the twenty-first century.
