Pomo Translator 2:Electric Bugaloo...

Reading the PoMo manifesto by Mark Driscoll, I found my next PoMo word to translate.

Missiology: "the conscious, intentional, ongoing reflection on the doing of mission. It includes theory(ies) of mission, the study and teaching of mission, as well as the research, writing, and publication of works regarding mission" (Neely 2000, 633). "1. the study of the salvation activities of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit throughout the world geared toward bringing the kingdom of God into existence, 2. the study of the worldwide church's divine mandate to be ready to serve this God who is aiming his saving acts toward this world" (Verkuyl 1978, 5).

Missiology is the science of mission which combines intercultural studies, anthropology, history, cross-cultural communications and theology.

So there you go. Or maybe you don't, it is PoMo, it could mean something else to someone else based on the phraseology.

Is there really a PoMo manifesto?

Nah, they can't have a manifesto because they don't believe in words can mean the same thing to multiple people.

But it could be done in finger paints without words...I can't believe I was so gullible as to think they truly had a manifesto...how embarrassing...
