Description

"CHRISTIAN MISSION IN RELIGIOUS PLURALISTIC SOCIETY"

Today, Christian Mission faces challenges from different religions, spiritual and philosophical traditions that deny the absolute Truth. Especially in Asia as the birth place of the four primary world religions, the challenge of Pluralism is apparent in each locality and throughout the continent. We need to understand these phenomena in different contexts in Asia, how Christian workers are struggling and striving with this challenge and explore how Christians should respond to these challenges. Thus, through this forum we would like to (1) better understand the contemporary situation of Christian Mission in pluralistic Asia, (2) reaffirm the local and universal nature of the Christian Gospel in pluralistic societies, and (3) explore effective missional strategies in culturally relevant and sensitive ways.
