Perhaps in an ideal world mission and theology would fit like hand in glove. But evangelical mission can too easily be practiced without theological reflection. And evangelical theological development often takes place in isolation from mission. For example, few theologians seem to have read British missionary theologian Lesslie Newbigin whose theological insights are helpful. Conversely, few missionaries seem to have read Canadian theologian Clarke Pinnock whose writings have influenced missional thinking about religions.

Maybe this site can contribute toward bridging this gap between theology and mission.

The Japanese Evangelical Theology pages are linked on, the online version of Japan Evangelical Missionary Association’s quarterly magazine.
