Unit overview and content

This unit is a foundational study in the field of Missiology. It explores in-depth the evolving nature of the Christian Church’s understanding of its mission over the centuries, recognising the relationship between this and the way in which the world has changed throughout history. The course also critically evaluates the theological reasons for Christian understandings of proclamation, liberation, and dialogue as crucial issues in today’s secular and pluralistic societies.
