How do we sing the Lord's song in "the strange land" that is now the 21st century? How do we take appropriate account of where and when we are without compromising the "old, old story of Jesus and his love?"

Harvie Conn pressed these questions while teaching missions for twenty-six years, and this volume, written by former colleagues in his honor, does the same. Contributing chapters are: Paul Hiebert, Raymond Bakke, Roger Greenway, Samuel Escobar, Charles Kraft, William Dyrness, and others. The volume begins with a previously unpublished essay by Conn on missions and theology.


"Harvie Conn's prophetic voice continues to be heard through his own writings and through the ministries of the countless colleagues, friends, and students that he influenced. Read this book, which both honors and continues Harvie's ministry to the church."

Tim Keller

"Important essays by a wide range of scholars who share the late Harvie Conn's passionate commitment to loving the whole person the way Jesus did."

Ronald J. Sider
