Current Issue

Vol. 2 No. 2 (2022): The Black Church and Missions

The Fall issue is the fruit of a special EMS conference track on the Black Church and Missions, largely out of the U.S. context. An array of papers written by Black scholars traverses the history and formation of the American Black Church in the context of slavery, its early conception of mission and cultural engagement, the sending of early Black missionaries, and the current state of the relationship of the American Black Church in modern missions. Additionally, as has become a Fall issue tradition, the life and work of a missiologist is showcased with an effort to introduce readers to the person behind the books and ideas. The issue concludes with several reviews of recent books in missiology.
