Mission Frontiers (March/April 2012) on the Family

The March/April 2012 issue of Mission Frontiers contains a number of interesting-looking essays on the family, tackling the question in the title of the issue: Is The Family God’s Prime Mission Strategy For World Evangelization?

Here’s the summary blurb:

‘Prepare yourself for a paradigm shift in your thinking about what it means to do missions. Evangelicals from the West are so accustomed to thinking about reaching people with the gospel as distinct individuals – one at a time. Much of our theology and evangelistic practices are centered upon this individualistic approach apart from any connection people have with their family or community. Have we missed God’s prime strategy for world evangelization with this exclusive focus on individuals?’
