Though incarnational mission, or 'embodying the message,' is a popular idea among Christians, it often comes under theological fire. Is it simply trying to follow the example of Jesus in our own strength? Is it arrogant for Christians to compare their mission with the incarnating mission of Jesus Christ? Is the idea of God-becoming-flesh itself sustainable today as a basis for Christian mission? This study is the first to define the meanings attached to incarnational mission across a variety of Christian traditions. It proposes a balanced approach to incarnational approach to mission involving the three dimensions of following Jesus in costly discipleship, conforming to the risen Christ, and co-operating in the universal dynamic of God's self-embodiment.

The distinctive value of this book rests in the fact that the author not only examines in detail the various uses of this term (incarnation) but also in the end identifies a convergence that can become a basis for incarnational missiology in today's world. -- Larry Nemer, SVD, Yarra Theological Union Pacifica there is much to commend in this book - good notes for the different chapters, a very comprehensive bibliography, and a good index...
