Nine essays written by Concordia Seminary theologians were prepared to aid Seminary faculty and students to bring the biblical message to the North American context in which God has called us to proclaim his Word. These essays, revised and updated, are offered here to challenge the church to active discussion and practice of Christ's mission in the world. The thoughts of the essayists may serve readers as building materials for the construction of bridges into the lives of those whom they encounter and who engage them in conversation about Jesus Christ. Christian witness begins with a deconstruction of false views of reality, and it comes to completion by bringing the promise of new life in Christ to construct a biblical "mind" in the midst of the (post)modern world. This volume is designed to support effective witness to the faith in our individual contexts into which God places us.
