BMS Mission Catalyst issue on mission and the Bible

Mission Catalyst issue on Mission and the BibleI missed this one when it came out (hooray for archives!), but a 2009 issue of BMS World Mission’s publication, Mission Catalyst focused on the theme of Mission and the Bible. Here’s the contents:

Cover to cover: mission throughout scripture
Mission doesn’t just start at Matthew 28. As Alan Pain explains, God told his people to ‘go’ from Genesis to Jesus – and beyond.

Oral Bible: the greatest story of all
In North Africa, people are coming to faith in Jesus through the mission of OneStory, which shares the Bible in culturally relevant ways. This is an example of that work in action.

New perspectives: mission brings the Bible to life
Four BMS mission workers reflect on how the culture in which they now live has changed the way they approach the Bible.

Bible reflection
The Bible is rich in world mission messages. Rev Sian Murray Williams focuses on one passage – the Journey to Emmaus in Luke 24: 13-35 – and provides a four-point sermon outline.
