Theological Viewpoints of Salvation and Mission : A Glocal Perspective Based on the Mizo Baptist Missionaries

Tracing the concept of `being saved' from the book of Acts to various missiological conversations on biblical salvation, this book investigates into a missiological soteriology, focusing on the question of who is saved and who is not. On the same topic, a case study was conducted among the Mizo Baptist Missionaries to find out their viewpoints on the Christian concept of salvation, especially in relation to the unevangelized. The findings have added rich local views on knowing who is saved and who is not. Seeing the importance of the relationship between missional theory and practice resulting into what is called glocalization, the book advocates "glocal perspective" in the context of World Christianity where evangelical conversations have often engaged on soteriological missiology.
