The course examines the story of God’s Global Purpose from four vantage points or “perspectives”.
The Biblical section follows three interrelated thematic trajectories through the Bible: God’s blessing, glory, and kingdom. Tracking these themes enables us to see a coherent story that encompasses all the stories of the Bible.
The Historical section shows the continuity of God’s purpose from biblical times until the present day. This section is not merely recounting representative events of mission history. It presents a theology of history.
The Cultural section enables students to understand the complexity and feasibility of the gospel being conveyed well by cross-cultural messengers to bring about culturally appropriate Christ-following movements. This section helps students to understand how two things can flourish in their cultural context: the message and the messengers.
The Strategic section shows how the task of bringing about Christ-following movements in every people can actually be accomplished. The possibilities and complex issues of seeing vibrant church movements flourish in every people are analyzed and show how church movements bring forth God’s promise of transformational blessing among all peoples.
Perspectives will challenge your view of God – and yourself. When students comprehend the remarkable opportunity God offers us, they understand the value and benefit of being a World Christian. The stunning privilege God grants his followers creates a passion to engage in the World Christian Movement.
