"Mission is handicapped without a sound biblical theology of mission and an understanding of the history of mission leading up to our current context. Constants in Context offers both of these elements. It is mission theology in historical perspective and/or a history of mission that is grounded theologically. The authors describe it as a systematic theology with mission at its core, and a church history shaped by the constant but always contextual Christian traditions. Furthermore it is a constructive contribution to how mission theology needs to be practical and lived out through today's church and in our world. Written collaboratively by Roman Catholic writers Stephen Bevans and Roger Schroeder, both Missionaries of the Divine Word (SVDs). It is a particularly insightful in regard to the history and the various streams of Catholic mission but it also addresses and learns from the other traditions of the church. In fact, one of the book's strengths is its attention to neglected aspects and hidden stories of church and mission history. As a result it is gratifying to be inspired by non-European mission, women in mission and various forgotten or often ignored branches of the church. The book is in three sections: first, there is a framework for cultural contexts and theological constants; second, an in-depth exploration of historical stages and different models for mission; and third, a presentation of theological frameworks for mission. The third section concludes with a case for 'mission as prophetic dialogue' being the most appropriate model for 21st century mission." -- Amazon.com

"Teologia per la missione oggi" offre un'ampia e profonda prospettiva sulla missione per il XXI secolo. I due missiologi, Stephen Bevans e Roger Schroeder, a partire dal loro impegno missionario personale e attraverso una metodologia storico-teologica innovativa, conducono a constatare che la Chiesa nasce dalla missione e si va configurando per la sua fedeltà ad essa. Lungo i tempi e gli spazi, con la guida di quest'opera, diventiamo testimoni e compagni di modelli di missione, di agenti e protagonisti, e di grandi personalità che hanno incarnato la missione dando configurazione alla Chiesa nei duemila anni di cristianesimo. L'opera si articola in tre parti. La prima parte espone i fondamenti biblici e teologici della missione. La seconda parte individua le costanti nel contesto, descrivendo i modelli storici della missione: nella Chiesa primitiva, nel movimento monastico, nell'età delle scoperte, nell'età del progresso, nel XX secolo con l'emergere del cristianesimo mondiale. La terza parte trae le conclusioni illustrando una teologia per la missione oggi: missione come partecipazione alla missione del Dio unitrino; missione come servizio liberatore del Regno di Dio; missione come annuncio di Gesù Cristo salvatore universale; missione come dialogo profetico
