Description

By Robin Elaine Denney, 2017. -- This thesis moves toward a constructive theology of mission amidst the core problems associated with short-term mission: paternalism, dependency and disempowerment, and lack of critical reflection. Voices in World Christian are prioritized by engaging these problems in conversation with world theology, the contextualization of scripture, and critical reflection on mission practice. From this conversation, nine principles are identified to shape constructive practice : encounter, incarnation, worship, empowerment, narrative, proclamation, repentance, reconciliation, and discernment. These principles are applied to case studies of innovative short-term mission and cross-cultural relationships.
