    Vatican II was a ground-breaking experience affecting every aspect of the life and mission of Christians. The Council changed the course of Christian relation to the world and all human beings with their religions and cultures. In this sense, Christian service and mission to the world were at the core of the conciliar reflections. This book evolved from an international symposium held at the Yarra Theological union of the University of Divinity on the occasion of the fiftieth year of the promulgation of the Conciliar Decree, Ad Gentes. The thirteen chapters of the book focus on the contemporary issues on mission as they exist in different parts of the world. The book offers a window to the world mission theology by writers who not only belong to the social and cultural diversities but are dealing with these issues in their theory and practice.
