Hanciles’ current research surveys the history of global Christian expan- sion through the lens of migration. He has written and published on is- sues related to the history of Christianity (notably the African experience) and globalization, including two books, Euthanasia of a Mission: African Church Autonomy in a Colonial Context (Praeger, 2002) and Beyond Chris- tendom: Globalization, African Migration and the Transformation of the West (Orbis Books, 2009), and countless articles. His article “The Future of Missiology as a Discipline” was one of the top ten most read articles in Missiology in 2015. He serves as associate editor of Missiology, one of the premier scholarly journals of mission studies, and on the editorial adviso- ry committee for Baylor University Press’s Studies in World Christianity.
