Has mission any meaning in our multicultural and
multi-religious world? Has mission studies any
place in the academy? What theological possibilities and
practical insights did Vatican II create for missiology?
Experts from Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, Europe, the
Middle East and North America, respond to these questions.
They explore „mission“ as „intercultural studies“; adopt
decolonial thinking to privilege knowledges from the margins
of our wounded world. Themes such as interculturality,
interreligious dialogue and inculturation, justice,
peacebuilding, and reconciliation expand Vatican II to
celebrate mission among and with
the nations.
