Missional Journal 6, 1 (April 2012)

The world goes missional!’, suggests David Dunbar in his latest Missional Journal.
Actually, he focuses on the Lausanne Movement, and its attendant documents over the years – the Lausanne Covenant (1974), the Manila Manifesto (1989), and the Cape Town Commitment (2010), describing the latter as a ‘carefully and winsomely written theological statement’, and noting in particular the emphasis on love as the driving theme. The Cape Town Commitment is pointedly missional, he claims, drawing attention to its focus on (1) the word and deed gospel, (2) the cosmic gospel, and (3) the whole-church mission.
