    Abstract

    This thesis addresses the challenge to Christian mission posed by the rapid rise of urban slum and squatter neighbourhoods in the Majority World. Rather than seeing incarnational mission as a model, method or value, a view of incarnational mission which utilizes the trinitarian motif of enfleshing hope is proposed. This approach has the potential to invite distinctive and effective Christian responses to the challenge of slums.
