Alternative religions, spiritualities and therapies have flooded the market place. In a multi-cultural, tolerant and permissive environment, it is virtually forbidden to distinguish sharply between true and false, genuine and spurious faiths and values. In Mission Under Scrutiny, J. Andrew Kirk explores the role of mission in a post-modern, secular society, and focuses his controversial argument on the tough issues churches have to face, including the authority of scripture in a pluralist culture, the role of religion in conflict and the role of evangelism in the contemporary world. This book will appeal to those who wish to understand better some of the most pressing questions facing the Christian community’s vocation to mission. The author explores each theme with sensitivity, calling upon his considerable experience of worldwide mission to throw light on the nature of the issues and to suggest possible responses that Christians need to embrace in order to meet the challenges.
