T&T Clark Handbook of Intercultural Theology and Mission Studies provides an overview of the developments within mission studies that has led to the change in nomenclature to include intercultural theology, world Christianity, ecumenics and history of religion.

What is the relationship of the faith to politics, religious pluralism, gender relations, cultural diversity, economics, politics, sacred texts, ancestors, social structures, healing, and colonisation? The answer to these questions informs how the community structures itself, how it interprets its relationship to the world around it, and the theologies and liturgies it develops for telling the story of its relationship to God. Nor is this diversity static. Through migration, or mission, or political expansion, or simply through shifts in ideologies, these communities literally and symbolically move across cultural, socio-economic, political, general, ideological, and generational boundaries.
