Missiological Research & Resources

May. 14, 2013By: Evan Burns

There are numerous resources on the Internet for those who want to research theology and learn more about various evangelical doctrines.  Well-known fraternities of theologians (such as Evangelical Theological Society) commence each year to discuss the latest theological research and debatable doctrines.  Many seminarians, professors, and even missionaries are not aware that within the study of missions—missiology—there are likewise fraternities of missiologists (such as Evangelical Missiological Society), and they also write for journals, research missiological issues, and discuss orthodoxy and orthopraxy.  Below are sample resources of evangelical missiology’s scholarship:

Enoch Wan is president of Evangelical Missiological Society (EMS) and the founder/editor of the research journal, Global Missiology.  EMS has some great missiological resources.  And The Southern Baptist Journal of Missions and Evangelism (SBJME) offers some very good theological-missiological research.  For a more denominationally eclectic missiological research journal, the International Bulletin of Missionary Research contains many scholarly resources for missiological studies.  And Joshua Project and People Groups are two easy-to-access websites containing data about Unreached People Groups.  There are other helpful resources out there, but these are a good start for missiological research.
