    One thought on “GloboChrist: The Great Commission Takes a Postmodern Turn

    1. Mark

      A provocative and no holds barred engagement with contemporary missiology and its challenges. Even though it is nearly 10 years old now, it is prescient and insightful - especially as the global church is confronted by aggressive secularism in some parts of the world and/or expansionist (and sometimes violent) Islamism in others. The key is eschatology. And unless we have a robust eschatology that is full both of the convictions AND humility of the kingdom, we will have nothing to say or do in t [...]

    2. Dwight Davis

      A really helpful book on missions in the postmodern moment. Raschke offers us a good way forward in the midst of globalization and Islamism. Rashcke has some great thoughts here about the importance of contextualization (Incarnational) ministry. Although I don't necessarily agree with everything he posits, this is a really helpful read.

    3. Bryan

      Possibly the best book I've read yet on the present relationship of the church to the world. Also it is full of surprises as Raschke seems to evade theological predictability. In fact he seems to disagree at least partly, and sometimes to large extent, with practically everyone - except perhaps Bonhoeffer and Jesus, which of course puts him in good company. This is one of those books that makes one have to grapple with the issues raised. I recall this was what also happened the first time I read [...]

    4. David

      This is an absolute must-read for Christian leaders in America. Raschke has given us a gem here in which we find critiques of both the "conservative right" and "liberal left" of Western Christianity with the challenge to view the world and the church through global eyes. Globalization is happening and the Church is exploding through the world. Raschke helps us understand this and how it changes how we must do ministry.The first chapter focuses on how Christianity has become not merely a Western [...]

    5. Tim

      A thoughtful book that sees globalization (which he hastily equates with postmodernism) and the indigenization of the gospel as the necessary components of a modern missional faith. He compares Christianity with activist Islam to provoke the church to proper action in the world. Raschke's thinking is challenging (even if it seems to rely on a fairly narrow range of thinkers on non-theological topics) and his writing style is sharp, not shy to point out the faults of conservative evangelicals an [...]

    6. Greg Kerestan

      I don't read much sociology or theology, but as part of a course I took on liberation philosophy and theology in the Third World, I picked up this work on the more radical, socialist-leaning branch of liberation theology in the Catholic Church. In this time of renewed interest in democratic socialism and the rise of Bernie Sanders's popularity as a viable presidential candidate, whatever side one is on, it's interesting to see that these ideas of antimaterialism and charity are still viable with [...]

    7. Jon Anderson

      Interesting look at missions within a global, postmodern context. Best chapters were the one dealing with conflict of ideas between Islam and Christianity and the one on what the church should look like in such a context. Strong emphasis on relational nature of discipleship. For series written for nonspecialists, this is the first book of the series where I kept having to look on dictionary for word meanings. The previous two volumes were more accessible for the nonspecialist.

    8. Todd Miles

      This book is typical Raschke at his irritating and condescending best. The good points that he brings up are obscured by his disdain for and caricature of conservative evangelicals and his pathetic biblical exegesis. However, his material on Islam (something to which his background lends itself) is worth the price of the book and was very good and thought-provoking.

    9. Doutor Branco

      Among the records of this series this one is so far the best I have gone through nevertheless the writers cannot separate themselves from Brian McLaren and his heresies.

    10. Paul Rack

      Apart from the anti-Muslim paranoia, this is a pretty good book. He points out that Christianity is a global faith being increasingly influenced and determined by its Third World majority.
