"At the 'International Bulletin of Missionary Research' we have taken this occasion to focus attention on the current status and strategy of the Christian world mission, and to assess contemporary trends and issues, in a series of essays on 'Mission in the 1990's' that first appeared in our journal during 1989 and 1990. These articles attracted such interest and attention that we have decided to make them available to a wider public. They are published here in the order in which they first appeared in the 'Bulletin'." -- Foreword.
