Abstract

When Missio Dei is examined from the perspective of Postmodern and African Theologies, new possibilities and metaphors emerge that can contribute to our understanding of God and Church’s mission in the world. Missio Dei, it is shown, should also deal with panentheism, relationships, sacrifice and justice.
