n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - "Mission as ..." must we choose?

This paper explores three approaches to the theology of mission that use the phrase "mission as ..." to describe the basic nature of (or indicate the diversity within) the encompassing mission of God. The views analysed and compared in the paper are mainly those of Bosch (1980, 1991), Bevans & Schroeder (2004) and Schreiter (1992, 1997, 1998). In dialogue with these scholars the paper develops a praxis approach to mission as transformative encounters, which holds together seven dimensions of mission in creative tension.
