Identity Formation in the NT

Here are some books I want to work through. Does anyone know of attempts to integrate these theological studies with the issues we are facing in missiology?

Would you dare to love ISIS?

"Would you dare to love ISIS?"

That is the name of the video below, a deeply Christian response to the hate and evil pouring out of Muslim extremists in the Middle East:

There are a number of reasons to take 4 minutes to watch the video, but thinking missiologically I can think of 3 in particular: 
  • Does Jesus' victory over death truly shape our mission praxis? 
  • What does it mean to "love our enemies" within the current atmosphere of Muslim/Christian conflict?
  • Where does martyrdom fit into our missiology?  
I'll leave it to you to wrestle with these, I know I still am.
