The faculty in Canadian Bible Schools and Seminaries have been doing a lot of thinking about the place of the mission of God and the message of His Kingdom in Canada today. Tyndale Academic Press is a collaboration between the Canadian Bible Society and Tyndale University providing a significant platform for Canadian Christian writers and researchers who combine academic enquiry, social research and an action orientation to share their wisdom with Christian leaders and others who are working in the frontlines of Christian ministry – the church in Canada – so that it could be more effective in the ministry to which God has called it. Tyndale Academic Press publications are meant to provide a Canadian voice and perspective in the conversations on mission in Canada and globally. – R.D.
