David Smith is one of our 'local authors', currently lecturing at the International Christian College in Glasgow. In the immediate aftermath of the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York on 11 September, 2001, David Smith travelled to Northern Nigeria. Weeks before, there had been an outbreak of serious inter-communal and inter-religious violence. These events created a challenging context in which to teach at a theological college. The material from that visit forms one chapter in this book, which explores theological and missiological issues arising in a religiously plural world. Against the stream, David Smith argues that Christianity and mission must be counter-cultural in a globalized world shaped significantly by materialist and economic values, and challenges certain received, stereotyped understandings of our Christian response to this world. At the same time, he affirms that now is a great time to be alive. The church of Christ now looks more like the multi-ethnic crowd without number of Johns vision in the book of Revelation than at any previous point in history. However, there is an urgent need, particularly within Western Christianity, for an openness to new perspectives in theology and mission. This valuable contribution stimulates us to refocus on the missionary calling of the whole people of God.
