Understanding Christian mission : participation in suffering and glory by Scott W Sunquist( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive introduction helps students, pastors, and mission committees understand contemporary Christian mission historically, biblically, and theologically. Scott Sunquist, a respected scholar and teacher of world Christianity, recovers missiological thinking from the early church for the twenty-first century. He traces the mission of the church throughout history in order to address the global church and offers a constructive theology and practice for missionary work today. Sunquist views spirituality as the foundation for all mission involvement, for mission practice springs from spiritual formation. He highlights the Holy Spirit in the work of mission and emphasizes its trinitarian nature. Sunquist explores mission from a primarily theological--rather than sociological--perspective, showing that the whole of Christian theology depends on and feeds into mission. Throughout the book, he presents Christian mission as our participation in the suffering and glory of Jesus Christ for the redemption of the nations

Narsai and the Persians : a study in cultural contact and conflict by Scott W Sunquist( )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: The following work is a study of the church of Syria in the fifth century in its cultural context--that of Sasanian Persia. Narsai, the head of "The School of the Persians," is taken as the subject as his theology is studied and compared with the theology of his cultural milieu. The twin doctrines of creation and salvation are compared to look for lines of continuity and points of conflict. In the introduction, Narsai's life and the school at Nisibis are studied noting the central role of the head of the school and the nature of the school in the fifth century. Chapter one studies the Zoroastrian theology, focusing on the twin doctrines of creation and salvation. In the end of the chapter the religious life of the Zoroastrian is studied, and then in the appendix asceticism is compared with the Zoroastrian worldview. Chapter two begins the study of Narsai's theology, looking first at his missiological dimension, cultural awareness and then the doctrine of creation. Throughout the chapter his doctrine is compared with the teachings of Zoroastrianism as outlined in chapter one. In chapter three Narsai's doctrine of salvation (including the judgment and eschatology) is studied and compared with that of Zoroastrianism. Chapter four concludes by noting some of the areas of continuity and the areas of conflict between the two theologies. The author concludes by utilizing Weber's concept of elective affinities to suggest that the spread of East Syrian Christianity in the East may have been encouraged by the affinities in specific areas of the world views
