Abstract
New Winds in Mission Theology: A Comparative Analysis of Three Recent Mission Documents

With the Lausanne Movement’s Cape Town Commitment (CTC), World Council of Churches’ Together Towards Life (TTL) and Pope Francis’ Evangelii Gaudium (EG) the three major ecclesiastic families have updated their mission theology. These documents witness for a certain convergence especially through the way in which they react to the global context. E.g. all of them share a critical voice against the consequences of global capitalism. While CTC and EG speak for the poor, TTL opens a fresh approach in positioning itself in the global south in terms of theology and ethics.
