This collection of essays introduces readers to what is important to the character and forms of church partnership at the beginning of the twenty-first century, as viewed by major Asian Protestant church leaders. The essays are based on the papers presented in a conference on 'Cooperation and Partnership in the Mission of Church in the 21st Century' held in Singapore in 2009.
The Singapore conversation took place amid huge volatility in the first decade of the new millennium: the 9/11 attacks, SARS outbreak, Indian Ocean tsunami, the Nargis cyclone, Mumbai terrorist attack, the H1N1 pandemic, and the still evolving global financial crisis. Perhaps for the first time since 1945, Asian churches can no longer rely on their Western counterparts to provide intellectual leadership and material support. This book offers a missiological reading on the fresh directions that Asian churches take amid radical social and ecclesial reconfigurations in the globalising age.
