Since the WCC Conference on World Mission and Evangelism held in Arusha, Tanzania, in 2018, all three of the commission’s working groups have worked on and finalized a study document, and these papers, together with a slightly earlier document from the WCC Ecumenical Disability Advocates Network, have been edited into a single volume by WCC Commission on World Mission and Evangelism director Rev. Dr Risto Jukko.
Each study document, preceded by a short introduction, then gives the reader an up-to-date overview and state of the missiological thinking and practice of the ecumenical mission movement at the end of the 2010s and beginning of the 2020s, and a vision of the potential beyond the 11th WCC Assembly in Karlsruhe in 2022.
The Commission on World Mission and Evangelism study documents in “Call to Discipleship: Mission in the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace” are based on two recent ecumenical mission affirmations. The first is the WCC mission affirmation “Together towards Life: Mission and Evangelism in Changing Landscapes” (2013). The second is “The Arusha Call to Discipleship,” an outcome document of the WCC Conference on World Mission and Evangelism.
