MISSION TODAY THEMES AND ISSUES
Systematic reflection on the Church’s millennial missionary activity began only from the 20th century. Since then much material has been forthcoming on almost every aspect of this vital dimension of the Church’s life. Missionary activity itself has been placed within the wider perspectives of ‘evangelisation’, as explained in the present work. Missiology has developed in great strides, especially during the last four decades, as both the Magisterium and missiologists grapple with the new situations, problems and questions which arise on the frontiers of the Church’s life and labour.
