Re: Mission: A Narrative of Hope for a Post-Eschatological Church


Paternoster 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Postmodern missions and New Testament studies collide in this innovative, radical book as Andrew Perriman contrasts the early and modern church, examining Christianity’s history. He argues that since our context is different than that of our forefathers, our mission must be as well.

Perriman’s controversial argument maintains that the eschatological crisis faced by the early church—the coming judgment on the enemies who opposed God’s people—passed with the collapse of the Roman Empire, but creational disorder still remains. In Re: Mission, Perriman argues that a missiology oriented toward a new creation is far more relevant than a missiology oriented towards rescue from opposition and persecution.

Re: Mission seeks to move beyond traditional methods of evangelism and mission and offers practical ways to encourage and equip today’s church. The Logos edition of Re: Mission integrates completely with your digital library. Scripture references link directly to your favorite English translation and your original-language texts, instantly connecting you a wealth of resources. Networked passage guides, word studies, and commentaries allow you to delve into God’s Word like never before.
