"SVD Authors Contribute to
the Fifteen Outstanding Books of 2015
for Mission Studies"

See Also: Steyler Missionare - Interkulturelle Mission

The selection of the top fifteen books of 2015 in Mission Studies by the prestigious and ecumenical International Bulletin of Mission Research included the following two books edited by SVD:

  1. Ross, Cathy, and Stephen Bevans, SVD, eds. Mission on the Road to Emmaus: Constants, Context and Prophetic Dialogue. London: SCM Press.
  2. Stanislaus, Lazar, SVD, and Martin Ueffing, SVD, eds. Intercultural Living (Vol. 1) and Intercultural Mission (Vol. 2). Sankt Augustin: Steyler Missionswissenschaftliches Institut; New Delhi: ISPCK.

The first work includes chapters by three SVD, and the second 2-volume work chapters by sixteen SVD and one SSpS, among other Catholic and Protestant writers. It is also very noteworthy, that these two books are the only ones by Catholic authors in the list of the top fifteen chosen for 2015.

We see the role of the SVD in the ecumenical world of mission studies.
