Mission after Christendom provides a very illuminating update on mission theology and praxis a centenary on from the 1910 World Missionary Conference. Here is a collection of essays looking at mission now being 'bottom up' and about ‘dialogue', and 'from everywhere to everywhere', with such contemporary topics considered as globalisation, the environment and migration. This is more than welcome. It is a valuable contribution to the study of mission and world Christianity today. The contributors come from a wide academic spectrum and the topics tackled are from a practical as well as theological and biblical base - here is an insight into various parts of the world and the 'emergent themes in contemporary mission': it may be broad in its application, but important to address none the less.
