Mari-Anna Auvinen-Pöntinen and Jonas Adelin Jørgensen (eds.), Mission and Money: Christian Mission in the Context of Global Inequalities. Leiden: Brill, 2016, 197 pp., Pbk. $ 63.00, ISBN 9789004318304.This edited volume, consisting of an introduction and ten chapters by twelve established scholars, is the result of discussions held at the International Association for Mission Studies Europe Conference, convened in Helsinki in 2014. All but one of the chapters are rewritten from that conference’s presentations. The conveners were concerned with how to bridge the gap between missiology and other social sciences, especially economics, in a world where economic inequalities are now global. This is a gap not only in knowledge but in ethical and moral stances. To oversimplify, modern capitalism can be said to have developed by breaking the ethical monopoly of the Catholic Church and harnessing key ethical principles of Protestantism to its uses (the recent rise of prosperity churches are an overt manifestation of this trend). Capitalism and Christianity have existed in an uneasy state of tension ever since.How to move missiology’s focus on money from how to finance missions to a fuller engagement of Christian theology with issues of money and capitalist economy is a major purpose of this
