A Case Study in Contextualization
A Case Study in Contextualization0 0 5 Scritto da: Fred W. McRae
The "sweet spot" in missions is called contextualization and involves much more than learning a new language. It means knowing a country's religious, political, and social conditions. Correct theology, financial backing, and language acquisition are meaningless without contextualization.
This book tells the story of a German organization struggling to contextualize the gospel in a very hostile environment. Its mission was to revive a dying church, characterized by centuries-old religious pride and pluralism. This study details the challenges of faithfully communicating the gospel in a post-Christian culture and serves as a study to enable missionaries to recognize and respond to cultural issues affecting the contextualization process.
