Delighted to announce the publication of my new book – Mission as God’s Spiral of Renewal (Mzuzu: Mzuni Press, 2019). The 450-page volume brings together my seminal essays on the meaning of Christian mission. Ranging widely but with particular focus on Scotland’s missionary legacy, African Christianity and the future of the West, it invites readers to consider mission as God’s spiral of renewal.

I am grateful for positive early feedback:

“At once creative, pastoral, and prophetic, this book confirms Ken Ross’s distinguished reputation as a major mission thinker. His gripping essays bring the past into the present, and point toward the future of mission. I recommend it very highly.”

Dana L. Robert, Truman Collins Professor of World Christianity and History of Mission, Boston University, USA

“This remarkable volume … will be immensely beneficial to students of missiology and general readers who are interested in the subject of Christian Mission.”

Philomena Njeri Mwaura, Associate Professor in African Christianity, Kenyatta University, Kenya

President of the International Association for Mission Studies 2004-08

“…an engagement with some of the core issues with which students and scholars of mission must be engaged … it’s innovative and brilliant!

The book is available from the African Books Collective – – at a price of £32.
