Van Rooy, Herculaas F. (Herrie)
MetadataShow full item record
In the recent past the issue of the missio Dei played an important role in the discussions about the mission of the church as God's instrument in the world in missionary work and theological training. This contribution focuses on the study of the Old Testament and its role and message for the mission of the church as well as for theological training. After discussing some aspects of the missio Dei, a number of examples of the use of the Old Testament in this regard are discussed as well as the way the message of the Book of Ezekiel may contribute to understanding the missional task of the church.
