Author: Tim Davy, Editor of Encounters, Visiting Lecturer and Director of the Mission and Old Testament Project, Redcliffe College.
The Mission and Old Testament Project is a new venture based at Redcliffe College that seeks to encourage thinking, writing and discussion on the relationship between the Hebrew Scriptures and the theory and practice of mission.
Traditionally, thinking on mission has tended not to embrace the role and vitality of the Old Testament. In recent years, however, there have been an increasing number of books and articles on the subject. But where do biblical scholars, missiologists and mission practitioners go from here?
At the heart of the Mission and Old Testament project are the convictions that:
1. The Old Testament matters.
2. Mission matters.
3. They matter to each other.
