oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - The functioning of the Bible in Protestant mission

Volume 31, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



To show how the Bible functions in the praxis of Protestant missions this paper uses a framework that expresses the key dimensions of mission praxis: a) the mission method or strategy employed; b) the agents carrying it out; c) the context analysis they employ; d) the theological concepts informing their thinking and action. It plots the wide variety of Protestant missions on a continuum ranging from 'conversionist' to 'Iiberationist' approaches.
