In MISSION, THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION AND THE TRANSFORMATION OF POST-SOVIET SOCIETY, Joshua T. Searle and Mykhailo N. Cherenkov contribute a remarkable chronicle of the past and prescient view of the future of the church, missions, and particularly theological education in the former Soviet Union. The collaboration of
Cherenkov—Ukrainian, and Searle—British, who are both scholars, mission strategists and practitioners, provides especially useful perspective. This book focuses on the years since the collapse of communism, which have been sparsely analyzed. In this well-documented book, this happens with precision and perspicacity. Political, social and other terrain is examined, but always grounded deeply in the gospel. MISSION, THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION AND THE TRANSFORMATION OF POST-SOVIET SOCIETY is a most valuable documentation and discussion now and for the future.
