Abstract:

How does a student of missiology learn about contemporary scholarship in the field? How does a scholar or librarian select books on a limited budget for purchase? Publishers sell only their own books in catalogues, journals publish book reviews but only of selected titles after some delay, or print lists of books received but without information on their contents or usefulness. Many times bibliographies must be the primary resource. The International Mission Bibliography is the key to finding the most important works on missiology published from 1960-2000. This massive work includes the research of more than 30 sub-editors in a number of mission-related disciplines, including history, theology, social aspects, education, evangelism, spirituality, and political life, and includes sections on Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. Complete publication details and ISBNs are given for each entry. This sixteen-year project has culminated in one of the most comprehensive and major reference works to be found on missions.
