Missional spirituality is one of the most exciting and dynamic trends to emerge in the study of missiology recently. Its relationship to matters ecological make it more topical and less individualistic in a world facing environmental catastrophe. Never was the time more opportune for human beings to work out their identity along with our relationship with God and our destiny in such a situation. Therefore, the subject is the formation of the pilgrim people of God with God and creation. This formation has a number of dimensions and these are the subject of this book. Spirituality is about worship in its widest sense and worship is about doxology - giving God the glory. Formation is about establishing a nurturing discipline in all people and their life's direction and end which is the kingdom of God. Following David Bosch's definition it as a Spirituality of the road (1979) in which God is the caller and we the respondents. In this process we gave freedom to choose and to act humbly and responsibly in the face of the great challenge we have been presented with. This process had five dimensions and to each a chapter is devoted.
