Missions amidst Pagodas

by Peter Thein Nyunt

For almost 200 years Protestant missionaries have endeavored to communicate the gospel to Burmese Buddhists in Myanmar. However, Christianity among this people group is still regarded as a ‘potted plant’ with former Buddhists being separated from their community and culture. In this publication Peter Thein Nyunt, a former Buddhist monk, examines past and current approaches of the Protestant church among Burmese Buddhists. Based on his findings he develops a contextual missiological strategy, with a relevant christological message and ecclesiological structure.
