KNOETZE, Johannes J.. A long walk to obedience: Missiology and mission under scrutiny (1910-2010). In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2017, vol.51, n.2, pp.1-7. ISSN 2305-0853.

This article describes the discipline of missiology and mission over the last century since Edinburgh 1910 followed by two world wars to Edinburgh 2010, as a long walk to obedience - a walk in discerning God's will. Even in biblical times, mission as spreading the gospel to those who do not yet believe in the Trinitarian God, was under scrutiny from within and outside the church (cf. Ac 10-11, 15 and Galatians). Throughout history until today it was never different. This article looks at the development of mission over the last 100 years from a Western (mainline missionary churches - MMCs) perspective. The development of missiology as a subject and theological discipline will be described along the lines of some of the mission conferences. Attention will be given to the following questions: What does it mean to be obedient to the mission calling in a broken and traumatised world? Is there a credible way of redeeming mission and missiology from its own past?
