In Current Issues in Missions (MI102), Dr. Tim Sisk discusses the changing world situation since the beginning of the modern missions movement in the mid-19th century and introduces new mission opportunities and approaches these changes have created. He explores the impact and implications of globalization and the shift of the “Christian center” from Europe and European-derivative cultures to the southern hemisphere. Dr. Sisk also introduces the contemporary debates regarding appropriate contextualization and the relationship between evangelism, humanitarian relief, and issues of justice.
