Missionary Self in Cross-Cultural Mission
photo_1550_20060510.jpg

Religiously motivated missions are part of a long historical tradition in vari­ous world religions. Missions are usually regarded as undertakings to prop­ agate, spread and communicate religious beliefs, values and convictions across social, ethnic and cultural boundaries. Missionaries as the agents of mission attempt to convert and proselytise non-believers or those with oth­er cultural backgrounds and religious traditions. In this transformative pro­cess, experiences of cross-cultural difference, alienation and otherness un­doubtedly play a crucial role. These kinds of experiences have not yet been systematically analysed nor has research on cross-cultural mission and in­tercultural communication! provided the necessary knowledge in terms of culture-related learning and the psychological and sociological implications for mission practice.
