The Bible and mission collaborating in todays multicultural global context.
Fire and the word are two symbols, which Jesus uses to describe the dynamics of his mission. While his parable of the word has been well-developed, his parable of fire, a two-edged sword like the word, has gone largely unnoticed. This book suggests that this model might be a most fitting symbol for the multifaceted demands of Bible studies and mission in today's multi-cultural and complex global contexts. Pentecost, viewed as God's promised baptism of the earth with fire, has implications for biblical scholarship today as it did in the New Testament.
