MISSIO DEI AND COMPASSIO DEI: MINORITY CHRISTIANS EXPERIENCING GOD’S ACTS IN THE FACE OF HOSTILITY

Christof Sauer

Abstract


This article examines what we can learn about being a ‘missional church’ from reading the
book of Acts with minority Christians experiencing God’s acts in the face of hostility.
Romanian theologian Josef Ton discovers three lessons on suffering and martyrdom in the
book of Acts: understanding the sovereignty of God, regarding suffering for Christ as a
privilege and an honour, and trusting the leading and empowering of the Holy Spirit.

Keywords


Suffering for Christ; Theology of Martyrdom; Acts; Missio Dei
