In a region where the cradle of Christianity stood and where the church has had an uninterrupted presence, Christian mission is taking on new forms. These shifts are prompted by vast socio-economic, demographic, geopolitical, and ecological changes. This volume shows how Middle Eastern Christians are jointly exploring new paths in mission and how they are relating to other faiths, especially Islam. It paints an image of resilient and creative Christian communities with a costly commitment to mission.

The series of books arises from a study process that marked the centenary of the International Missionary Council (IMC), founded in 1921 at Lake Mohonk, USA. It has its origin in the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism of the World Council of Churches, which wanted to celebrate the work of its historical predecessor IMC (1921-1961).
