n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - A missiology of the road; Early perspectives in David Bosch's theology of mission and evangelism, Livingston J.K. : book review

Volume 43, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



On first sight this book offers a reinterpretation of David Bosch's magnificent contribution to the theology of mission in the twentieth century. It offers a lively introduction to the person and work of Bosch setting him firmly within his Afrikaner context and gives an interesting outline of his theology of mission with perhaps a disproportionate amount of space to the topic of evangelism. He outlines challenges to Bosch's missiology but misses out his attention to the role of women and the already pressing situation of the rise of Pentecostalism. Perhaps this betrays his own preferences. Ten chapters are divided into sections on Bosch in context, his theology of mission and evangelism, and critical dimensions for a missionary church. These are well summarised but offer no significantly new interpretation among the many works devoted to Bosch's theology of mission.
