Imagine Christian mission without the dichotomies of ‘us’ and ‘them’, mission which is relational and dialogical. These are some of the questions this book addresses which forces the reader to reimagine participation in God’s mission as a meeting of strangers brought together by the work of the Holy Spirit.
In my 25 years of guiding postgraduate students,Analzira Nascimento stands out.
