WilleinSaayman (1992) mentions three dimensions of missiology in which the idea of the conversion of the heathen should be challenged as primary aim of mission: namely, the relationship between evangelism and social involvement, intercultural communication and the theology of religions. Conversion as the primary aim of mission is seen by some as the essence of Reformed theology while still others regard it as the main obstacle to dialogue, progress and true humanity.
