      Abstract

      This article argues that reconciliation can function as an integrating metaphor for Christian mission. The mission of God is for transformed relationships in all dimensions - between humans and God, humans and humans, and humans and creation. Reconciliation is about setting things right. Used metaphorically in the theology of mission, it covers and draws together a wide range of ideas which are facets of the one reconciling mission of God.
