Mission Hits Journals #5 (Oct-Dec 2021)


Dear friends,


Welcome to Mission Hits Journals #5 (October-December 2021), a quarterly posting linking you to all recent articles from 33 different journals/periodicals related to world mission and world Christianity.


This edition contains a massive 22 journal issues and over 170 articles. I trust you will find something to keep you informed, inspired, and thoroughly up-to-date, so that you don't miss out on anything relevant to your ministry and interests.


Please note a new feature!I I have placed a 'MISSION HITS RECOMMENDS...' for most journal issues (there's still some I do not have easy access to), emphasizing one article that appears especially interesting. This is, of course, subjective. The suggestions are just friendly guidance for anyone who may appreciate a little direction in choosing what to read.


If you have friends, colleagues, professors, or students who might benefit from this resource, please forward it and encourage them to sign up to (they can do so by clicking here).


Any social media promotion you could make for this free resource would be highly appreciated too.


In Christ,


Chris (Howles) Head of Theology (Uganda Martyrs Seminary, Namugongo) Doctoral candidate (Fuller Theological Seminary)
