Do please read both blog posts.
With so much there to read it may seem superfluous to add anything else but I thought of a few more that would deserve to be on such a list:
A really good one-volume introductory reader on a range of missiological topics is this one:
Winter, Ralph D. and Steven C. Hawthorne, eds. Perspectives on the World Christian Movement, A Reader. 4th ed. Pasadena: William Carey Library, 2009.
There is nothing by Paul Hiebert on either list.
Here are a few of his writings that I have found very helpful:
- Cultural Anthropology. 2d ed. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1983.
- Anthropological Insights for Missionaries. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1985.
- Anthropological Reflections on Missiological Issues. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1994.
- Transforming Worldviews: An Anthropological Understanding of How People Change. Grand Rapids: Baker, 2008.
- The Gospel in Human Contexts: Anthropological Explorations for Contemporary Missions. Grand Rapids: Baker, 2009.
- with Frances F. Hiebert. Case Studies in Missions. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1987. (Now available on a pdf here.)
- with Eloise Hiebert Meneses. Incarnational Ministry: Planting Churches in Band, Tribal, Peasant and Urban Societies. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1995.
Another book that deserves to be read is this one:
- DeYoung, Kevin, and Greg Gilbert. What is the Mission of the Church: Making Sense of Social Justice, Shalom, and the Great Commission. Wheaton: Crossway, 2011.
It would be great to see regionally-focussed books as well but I guess that would make such a list unwieldy.
