Basic information


The IBMR includes: 

Feature articles and book reviews written by leading specialists on Christian mission from around the world—scholars from varied academic disciplines and theological perspectives.

The "Legacy" series with engaging accounts of pivotal mission leaders of the last two centuries and the equally engaging "My Pilgrimage in Mission" series that provides intimate insight into the lives of some of today's most distinguished mission scholars and practitioners—what can be called "history with a human face."

Regional surveys and analyses of important mission documents and consultations.

A "Noteworthy" news column that keeps you up to date on today's mission leaders, conferences, and study opportunities.

A listing of academic dissertations on mission and world Christianity. This dissertation list is kept up to date online in our "Researching World Christianity: Doctoral Dissertations on Mission Since 1900" database.

IBMR provides an editorial voice that is dispassionate, analytical, fair minded, and nonpartisan.
