"From East and West is a fascinating interplay of a person's own spiritual and theological journey to rethink Christian mission for today with an incisive analysis of the history of missions and mission theology. Preman Niles has successfully pulled together his long and rich experience in the global and Asian ecumenical movements and his tenure as General Secretary of the Council for World Mission into a volume on mission that is refreshingly readable, penetrating in its analysis, enriching in its insights. This is a 'must read' for those reflecting on mission for our day."

"A path-finding book that should be on the bookshelves of all those concerned about Christian mission today. Drawing from his vast knowledge of mission studies, biblical scholarship, and ecumenism, Dr. Niles documents the changes of ecumenical understanding of Christian mission and proposes a new paradigm of mission as 'the people of God in the midst of all God's peoples.' From East and West offers concrete examples and fresh insights to rethink mission in our post-September 11 world."
