n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Practical Theology and the One Body of Christ : toward a missional-ecumenical model, Thomas John Hastings : book review

Volume 36, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



Thomas John Hastings is a Professor in Practical Theology at the Tokyo Union Theological Seminary. This book is the result of his Ph.D. dissertation, and is published in the series with Don Browning, James Fowler, Friedrich Schweitzer, and Hans van der Ven as editors. The introduction confirms my contention that this book is not just a popular 'mission book', but a well-documented academic work. As such, it deserves the attention of everybody in the fields of missiology and Practical Theology. The quote on the back cover of the book underlines this: "This series contributes to the growing discipline of practical theology by providing frontline scholarship on major topics in the field, with an emphasis on the merging international discussion".
