MI101 Introducing Global Missions

not enough ratings
Introduction to Global Missions (MI101) introduces the reality of the rapidly changing sociopolitical world of the last 70 years. Don Fanning establishes working definitions for common terms and traces the mission impetus of God in both the Old and New Testaments. He explores the development of a theology of mission, reviews a history of missions from the first century to the present, and assesses possible directions for global missions in the future based on current trends. Fanning also discusses practical matters of preparing for missions, developing a strategy for a proposed mission, understanding cross-cultural considerations, fund-raising, and interacting with other religions of the world.
