The connection between God’s glory and the preaching of the gospel is significant. God is glorified as the gospel is preached and as it is believed. For this reason, it is essential that we know what the gospel is, how it is good news for people today, and how it can be rightly shared in our context. During the first week of June 2019, OMF held its sixth Mission Research Consultation on the theme “Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in All its Fullness” and discussed how it impacts our ministry. Four of the major papers from the Consultation form the bulk of this issue of Mission Round Table, each one pushing our understanding of the gospel in a slightly different direction.
