The study documents in the Call to Discipleship: Mission in the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace are based on two recent ecumenical mission affirmations.
The first one is the WCC mission affirmation Together towards Life: Mission and Evangelism in Changing Landscapes (2012).
The second is undoubtedly one of the most inspiring ecumenical mission documents of the 2010s, The Arusha Call to Discipleship, an outcome document of the WCC Conference on World Mission and Evangelism held in Arusha, Tanzania, in 2018. This book aims to deepen theological reflection on The Arusha Call to Discipleship. The Arusha Call, as well as the Arusha Conference Report, are included in this volume.
The study documents have been prepared by the thematic working groups of the WCC Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, with the addition of a slightly earlier document of the Ecumenical Disability Advocates Network (EDAN).
