The three-fold concerns of the authority of the Bible and the un-critical and un-contextual uses of the Bible in mission raise important questions about the role of the Bible in and for mission. This article aims to examine the role of the Bible in mission through a case study of the ways in which a mission organisation, namely the Council for World Mission, uses the Bible in and for mission. Furthermore, it will survey the biblical texts that the Council for World Mission has used as its raison d'être for mission; probe the challenges that mission faces in the context of globalisation and increasingly conservative uses of the Bible for mission; and examine possibilities of using the Bible not only for mission, but also in mission, through a case study of a contextual Bible study on Mark 7:24-30.
