MI9110 Contemporary Theology of Mission As David Bosch defined, missiology, as a branch of the Christian theology, is not a disinterested or neutral enterprise; rather, it seeks to look at the world from the perspective of commitment to the Christian faith. Such an approach does not suggest an absence of critical examination; as a matter of fact, precisely for the sake of the Christian mission, it will be necessary to subject every definition and every manifestation of the Christian mission to rigorous analysis and appraisal. With this idea of doing missiology, this course is designed to equip ThM and PhD participants with missiologically appropriated methodologies and perspectives in theologizing in mission, especially in our contemporary world.
