Beyond Missio Dei

Contesting Mission, Rethinking Witness

Palgrave MacMillan 2021

In Beyond Missio Dei: Contesting Mission, Rethinking Witness (Palgrave MacMillan, 2021), Sarosh Koshy strives to go beyond the mission model of Christianity that emerged alongside and within the colonial enterprise and ethos since the sixteenth century. Rather than denouncing the inheritance of the mission movement that transformed both the church and world in innumerable ways, it is a simultaneous expression of appreciation for this precious heritage and an attempt to do justice to it through a yearning quest for relevant paradigms of Christian engagement. This work enlists postcolonial and poststructuralist resources pedagogically to reflect on mission, missiology, World Christianity, and intercultural theology.
