This course will offer an introduction to the discipline of missiology. It will start with a brief overview of the history of the discipline, and will then look at major themes in the history and theology of mission. The course will start with the biblical material, seeing the Bible not simply as having something to say about mission as well as other things, but as emerging from the demands of mission. We will look at some key themes of contemporary missiology, such as the importance and difficulty of context, the idea of missio Dei, the theological foundations of mission. We will also have an overview of the historical development of mission. We will finish by looking at some key questions, especially the role of other religions and Christian attitudes towards them, and the possibility of doing Christian mission today.
