Lesslie Newbigin is an inspirational figure whose theological legacy should be considered carefully. Using a new book by Michael Goheen as guideline (The Church and Its Vocation: Lesslie Newbigin’s Missionary Ecclesiology), this article focuses on Newbigin’s views regarding the identity and mandate of the church. Two aspects are noted with appreciation: Newbigin’s defense of the uniqueness of Christ and his critique of Western culture. There are concerns, however, with respect to three aspects of Newbigin’s ecclesiology: his views of salvation, election, and the mandate of the church. The common thread in Newbigin’s approach appears to be his aversion and over-reaction against what he deemed to be an individualistic view of salvation.
