The Missio Dei Breviary is a simple, accessible book of morning and evening prayers. It reflects a commitment to a missional, incarnational way of life with a counter-cultural vibe. The Missio Dei Breviary draws primarily from the Anabaptist tradition, but is also inspired by Benedictine, Franciscan, and Eastern Orthodox spiritualities. It offers a 28-day repeating cycle of morning and evening prayers that draw from all four gospels.

Following a paradigm shift in his own personal understanding of mission, Vladimir Ubeivolc proposes the adoption of mission principles based on missio Dei to meet the social and spiritual needs of people in Moldova. Biblically grounded and insightful, the lessons to be learned from this book apply far beyond Eastern Europe. Dr Ubeivolc uses his knowledge from six years of research, twenty years of pastoral ministry and a lifetime of experience to summarize the landscape of the Moldovan Evangelical and Orthodox churches and their historical approaches to mission. His evaluation emphasizes the need for a biblical foundation to mission for Eastern European Evangelical churches. This book’s message is a timely, scholarly reminder of the need to pursue holistic mission if the church of Jesus Christ is to be an authentic and effective vessel to bring transformation to people’s lives and society.

In Holiness and the Missio Dei, Andy Johnson takes the reader on a biblical journey that explores the question of what holiness or sanctification has to do with God's mission in the world. He refuses to relegate the idea of humans becoming holy to the realm of individual inward piety or legalism, on the one hand, or to the realm of the impossible prior to Christ's return, on the other. Using a missional lens to guide the reader into a theological engagement with Scripture, Johnson argues that God's primary means of making us holy is through our participation in his saving, reconciling mission to bring creation to its intended destiny. As we become and remain part of an ecclesia, we are corporately and personally shaped by the Spirit into the image of the cruciform Son through participation in the missio Dei, and thereby are being restored into the image of the holy God--the imago Dei. This book is written primarily for church leaders, for students, and for academics who are interested in missional readings of Scripture. It will challenge those who read it to re-articulate the church's becoming holy as being inseparably connected to its active participation in God's mission.

The important term Missio Dei (Mission of God) needs a biblical foundation. The sending of God by God is a foundational motive in the New Testament. Even at the very beginning of salvation history, shortly after creation, God became the first missionary. In Jesus, God is the missionary par excellence, and in the Holy Spirit, God is the most successful missionary. Mission is part of the nature of God, and therefore mission can only be described holistically and in a manner that transforms human mission into the image of God’s mission. In three chapters three important themes regarding the Missio Dei are discussed: 1. The recent history of the term in missiology; 2. the biblical and systematic foundations; 3. the debate between the Western and Eastern wings of Christianity over the “filioque,” that is the question, whether the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father alone or by the Father and by Jesus, His Son.

The recent rediscovery of the doctrine of the Trinity has left great impact on the thought and life of the Christian Church. With this reinstatement, the Trinity, which was left out for long as an esoteric mystery, has captured the imagination of theologians and elicited remarkable trinitarian formulations from across theological traditions. This contemporary development has forced the church to review its dogma, spirituality, and Christian practices through the lens of this central doctrine of the Christian faith. One of the important and essential upshots of the doctrine has been the reclamation of a theocentric and trinitarian understanding of mission as the missio Dei. In view of the modern renewal of the Trinity and the global expansion of Christianity, this book explores insights and perspectives from the trinitarian thoughts of St. Augustine and the Indian theologian Brahmabandhab Upadhyay that can inform missio Dei theology relevant for the Indian context.

The missio Dei concept has shifted missiological thinking from an anthropocentric view of mission to the understanding that the church and persons are participants in the missio Dei. A Wesleyan perspective of grace and the means of grace inform the development of a theology of participation in the missio Dei that overcomes the repetitive articulations of mission as simply being human action or divine action. Through the means of grace, Christian disciples participate in the missio Dei as those transformed by God’s love and those through whom that love embraces and transforms the world. Missio Dei and the Means of Grace: A Theology of Participation offers a profoundly simple approach and understanding to twenty-first-century missiology that is applicable for all persons, all ages, and all ecclesial expressions of the Christian church, as participation in the missio Dei through the means of grace is understood to be a holistic way of life where spiritual formation is understood as inseparable from justice ministries.

This dissertation explores the implications of the mission of God for the nature and ministry of local congregations of the Malawi Assemblies of God. I initially reviewed literature in an attempt to trace the emergence of a growing concern for missions in the Malawi Assemblies of God. I discuss the underlying theology of the missio Dei , and review its development at selected points in the biblical narrative. The argument is made that while by its essential nature missio Dei theology is far reaching, it requires that the Malawi Assemblies of God churches nurture this missiological vision and begin to ask the question of what local congregations look like when they are shaped by God's mission. Two Malawi Assemblies of God churches, the International Christian Assembly and Area 47 Glorious Temple, serve as case studies from which primary data was gathered. The methods used to conduct the case studies included semi-structured interviews with key informants, focus groups and participant observation which were employed in an attempt to explore the missional self-understanding of the congregations and their constituent ministries and the extent to which this was reflected in the ministry that the churches actually carried out. Also of concern was in what ways the congregations carried out ministry appropriate to their individual contexts. The findings pointed to the truly diverse nature of the case studies and identified seven dynamics as being key in their individual expressions of their calling to mission. Highlighting the significance of congregational leadership, I then draw on leadership theories developed by Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal to present change concepts that may be utilized by other Malawi Assemblies of God congregations seeking to practically foster missional dynamics in their own pursuit of God's mission.
