Summary
In this timely work, Michael Doe shows the rightful position of mission as the lifeblood of the Church, and shows how our understanding of it as Christians is crucial for what we present to the wider world. He considers the Anglican roots within the nature of mission, current tensions in the Church and how they relate to social engagement, the history of mission and Church structures. An underlying theme of this book is power; how power has been exercised in God's Church, and how it should be used in the Anglican Communion today. He questions how that relates to the way we understand power in the mission of God, and especially in what we see in Jesus Christ.
