Breaking through the Boundaries: Biblical Perspectives on Mission from the Outside In (American Society of Missiology Series) Paperback
“Through a hermeneutics of hospitality that highlights openness, graciousness, and exchange, Breaking through the Boundaries explores biblical narratives that offer models of God working through ‘outsiders’ to further God’s mission. An important study for intercultural and interfaith encounters in today’s fraught society.” —Gale A. Yee, editor, The Hebrew Bible: Feminist and Intersectional Perspectives
“The authors have combined their biblical and ancient Near Eastern expertise with their varied personal backgrounds and experience to produce a highly readable and engaging exploration of easily neglected dimensions of familiar biblical narratives. On issues such as migration, hospitality, gender, the outsider, and ethnicity, they expose the missionally subversive dimensions of God’s revelation in Scripture. It is heartening and enriching to encounter such fertile missional exegesis and application of biblical texts.” —Christopher J. H. Wright, author, The Mission of God
