Riassunto: The centenary of the "Edinburgh 1910" World Missionary Conference has proved to be a suggestive moment for those concerned with the question of how the church of Jesus Christ engages the world in which it is set. "Edinburgh 2010" has succeeded in bringing together a broader representation of world Christianity than has ever before been mobilised in a common project. It has been able to draw on the experience and insights of people from every continent. It has also been enriched by the gifts and wisdom of almost every conceivable Christian tradition-from Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic to Pentecostal and Independent. This small book offers a bird's eye view of the results of the study process which has engaged nine key themes in preparation for the historic Edinburgh 2010 conference. It brings into sharp focus the crucial issues facing Christian mission today - in a way which invites both personal reflection and group discussion. Written in non-technical language and providing pithy accounts of the outcomes of the study process, this book is an ideal place to start for anyone aiming to become familiar with the substance of the discussion being generated by Edinburgh 2010.
