This volume looks at mission formations for all Christians and missionary formation for mission workers, agencies and churches in a changing situation for mission. The focus is on educating the whole people of God. Here is the reason for the title of this volume: Reflecting and Equipping for Christian Mission. Theological education in the broad sense participates in the task of equipping people for God's mission in today's world. At the same time we affirm that all theological education is contextual and that no particular context should exercise dominant influence.

“Doing theological education contextuatly is not necessarily educating and equipping for mission. All theological education is contextual but in this book theological educators focus on missionary formation, missional leadership and theology of mission. A remarkable achievement, in which models from different global regions and churches, past and present, mutually enrich each other.”
