Footprints of God is written in a type of festschrift style that honors the contribution made to the study of biblical theology of mission by Charles Van Engen. Birthed out of seminar taught by Professor Van Engen at Fuller, the contributors of this volume seek to expound upon his address for the Church to be partners with God, through a mission that is "of" the way, "in" the way, and "on" the way. Mission "of the way" refers to the overarching theme of the missio Dei, specifically in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Calling for both critical reflection and action, the authors seek to present relevant missiological topics that include studies of historical church leaders like Karl Barth, Jurgen Moltmann and Mother Teresa; as well as contemporary theological issues such as the intersection of feminism and missiology, understanding worldviews, and embracing a narrative theology.

Footprints of God is written in a type of festschrift style that honors the contribution made to the study of biblical theology of mission by Charles Van Engen. Birthed out of seminar taught by Professor Van Engen at Fuller, the contributors of this volume seek to expound upon his address for the Church to be partners with God, through a mission that is "of" the way, "in" the way, and "on" the way. Mission "of the way" refers to the overarching theme of the missio Dei, specifically in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Mission "in the way" advocates an incarnational identification and critical contextualization of the culture for communicating Jesus in both word and deed. Mission "on the way" is the forward moving "faith-pilgrimage" of God's people that continues throughout time in anticipation of the coming Kingdom and Christ's return.

The strongest chapters in the book and most applicable to the Twenty-first Century, highlight the ethnotheology of Charles Kraft, as well as a chapter on the comparison of worldview approaches of Kraft and Paul Hiebert. Most helpful was the illumination of E. Stanley Jones's use of round table conferences and his relational model of religious inclusion for doing ministry in a pluralistic context. Weakest of the book's section is chapter eighteen, "Missiology and the Internet". Though future oriented when it was penned during the conception of the "dot.com boom", much of the discussion on information sharing and human sexuality doesn't seem to fit with the ethos of theological rigor found in the rest of the book.
