'Magisterial' is a word often associated with David Bosch's Transforming mission. It is entirely appropriate since this has become a source of understanding and inspiration to students of missiology for the past twenty years and looks set to maintain that positing into the foreseeable future, notwithstanding the fact that times and contexts have changes considerably since its first publication. All of this despite the notable omission from the original including a significant section on the Old Testament, the role of women and the rise of Charismatic, Pentecostal and African Initiated Churches. A testimony to its global value is indicated by the number of translations which have been made of the text.
