Program Description

MA in Bible and Mission

A postgraduate course for those wanting to reflect on how mission fits into the Scriptures, and how to use the Bible to engage missional in a variety of cultural contexts.

With the increasing complexity of the Church's mission in the world, clear and deep biblical reflection is essential. Not only should God's people have a firm grasp of how mission fits into the Scriptures, we should also be confident and competent in using the Bible to engage missional in a variety of cultural contexts.

Redcliffe's MA in Bible and Mission enables students to explore mission in the Bible and the Bible in mission thinking and practice. It has been developed in partnership with various agencies including Wycliffe Bible Translators and Bible Society, both of whom will also be involved in the ongoing content of the course.

Who is this course for?

  • Are you involved in teaching or using the Bible for a mission in a cross-cultural context?
  • Do you want to gain a greater understanding of how the Bible relates to contemporary culture?
  • Do you want to research a missiological topic with a Biblical focus?
