This study argues for the importance of the incarnation in Christian mission and outlines the contours of an incarnational missiology.
It surveys the ways incarnational themes are used in a variety of theological traditions, such as the Anabaptist, radical evangelical, liberationist, Roman Catholic, Anglo-Catholic, ecumenical and Eastern Orthodox traditions, along with the thought of Jürgen Moltmann.
Incarnational mission is seen as three-dimensional: (1) following Jesus as the pattern for mission, (2) participating in the presence of the risen Christ as the power for mission, and (3) joining God’s cosmic mission of enfleshment in which God’s self-embodying dynamic is evident from the beginning of creation.
