Mission Hits Journals #10 (Feb-May 2023)

Dear missiologists,

Welcome to Mission Hits JOURNALS #10!

This edition covers new journal editions released between February and May 2023. It contains links to 31 different journal editions, from 26 different publications, containing 208 new papers and articles about an incredibly diverse set of topics surrounding world mission and world Christianity today. Truly, something for everyone!

Significantly, 20 out of these 31 editions are completely without cost online. Remarkable, really, to have free (and instantaneous) access to such top quality missiological wealth!

Allow me to welcome three journals to our 'fold' that haven't appeared here before:

(1) Seedbed (focussing on church-planting efforts among the unreached)

(2) Ethnodoxology (focussing on arts and faith in world Christianity)

(3) Oxford Journal for Intercultural Mission (focusing on intercultural mission and ministry in the Church of England, but obviously with much wider relevance).

To see the full list of featured journals, to see past editions, and to learn more about Mission Hits JOURNALS (a ministry of please click here.

Please let me know if there are ways that this ministry might be more useful to you, of if there are relevant journals I've accidentally missed off!

Can I ask just one thing of you please? If you have friends, colleagues, professors, or students who might enjoy this, please forward it to them. Anyone can sign up simply by clicking here.

With every blessing as you live in and live out God's great mission purposes.

In Christ,


Head of Theology (Uganda Martyrs Seminary, Namugongo), DIS Fuller Theological Seminary.
