"Editors James A. Scherer [and] Stephen B. Bevans".
Vol. 2: Theological Foundations of three volume series.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"'New Directions in Mission and Evangelization 2: Theological Foundations' is the second volume in Orbis Books' 'New Directions' series. It was conceived by the editors to continue the pattern of the earlier 'Mission Trends' (Anderson and Stransky, 1974-1981) series so as to make available significant and rather recently published missiological literature in an accessible and relatively economical form. .... [this volume] as the subtitle indicates, is an attempt to gather together articles and statements which, in one way or another, reflect efforts of missiologists and churchpersons to explore the various theological foundations on which the church's missionary efforts are based" (p. xi). .... "The fourteen essays and two regional statements included in this volume have all been previously published in journals and books dealing with mission, but many are not easily accessible to nonspecialists" (p. xii). -- Intro.
