Description
Montgomery, a missionary and minister who spent 16 years in Taiwan, designed this book both to introduce and to provide a catalyst for further research in what he calls the "sociology of missions". The book supplies the sociological balance to the generally anthropological leanings of most missionologists, providing a larger set of concepts and theories than is currently in use. Montgomery introduces the sociology of missions as a field of study and discusses several sociological theories, including social change theory and diffusion theory. Other chapters examine the relationship of religious movements, social identity, and the sociology of religion to missions.
