We do theology of mission today in a new paradigm, especially in the contexts of various African communities struggling with the legacy of colonialism. How are we to understand Bosch's Transforming mission as a paradigm shift in the Theology of Mission itself? This contribution appreciates the text in terms of the intellectual context of the author yet I propose that, complementary to this, there is a need also to introduce a different trajectory towards a transforming missiology in Africa. The implications of this in terms of transforming missiology are proposed tentatively.
