The first issue of Missio Dei journal has arrived!
Last summer I started working with several Harding Grad friends – Greg McKinzie (missionary in Peru), Nathan Bills (ThD Student @ Duke), Jason Whaley (missionary in Australia) and Danny Reese (missionary in Angola) – to create a journal that would make a contribution to the missional conversation from the Stone-Campbell tradition.
The result: Missio Dei: A Journal of Missional Theology and Praxis.
Much of the credit for the journal’s inception should be given to editorial board chair Greg McKinzie, who first dreamed of publishing such a journal, and who has shouldered the load of setting up the organization, supervising design of the journal and website, and formatting the final product.
The journal consists of four sections: Missional Theology; Missional Praxis; Reflections (for art, blogs, film, poetry, etc.); and Book Reviews. I served as the Praxis editor for the first issue.
This first issue features articles from Gailyn Van Rheenen, Mark Love, Jared Looney, and Kyle Holton. Storyliner Patrick Cone appears in the Reflections section for his film-making work.
Missio Dei is available solely in digital format from the journal’s website, www.missiodeijournal.com. The first issue is free to download after you register and log in.
