Christopher Wright: false dichotomies in mission

leave a comment »

An interesting couple of posts (highlighted by Timmy Brister) in which Christopher Wright (author of The Mission of God and The God I Don’t Understand) sets out five false dichotomies in mission:

  4. Opposing word and deed, or proclamation and demonstration, and prioritizing the first.
  5. Opposing evangelism and ecclesiology, and prioritizing the first.
