Regnum Studies in Mission (73 books)

The Regnum Studies in Mission series is born out of the lived experience of Christians and Christian communities-in-mission, especially in the fast growing churches among the poor of the world. These churches have more to tell than just stories of growth. Their work is making a significant impact, step by step shaping their cultures in the power and image of Christ. Through Regnum, these practitioners are expressing the reality of the Christian faith as it is manifested in their societies and making the work of God known, globally.

Titles in the Regnum Studies in Mission series are the fruit of rigorous research to the highest international standards. They demonstrate authentic Christian engagement that has led to the transformation of people and societies. These books are designed to impact the world, as the formation of Christian theology, missiology, and practice in the twenty-first century will depend to a great extent on the active participation of growing churches. Through Regnum, these ministries will be able to contribute biblically faithful and culturally appropriate expressions of Christian practice.
