In this book on contemporary missiology, Lessilie Newbigin applies the same discernment involved in contextualizing the gospel in another culture to the issues involved in contextualizing the gospel in our Western culture. He calls us to a thorough critique of our culture and of the way in which we understand or misunderstand the gospel of Christ and his good news of the kingdom of God. 156 pages from Eerdmans Publishing Company.

What a great book brimfull of very brilliant facts and observations. I was amazed at the level of the objective criticism. The book gives a fair judgment on the way many of us look at the Bible and the gospel today. Newbegin is very informative and so genuinely objective about his faith. He is a practically faithful man. He has tangible reasons for his faith. I would like more of such scholastic material. It is very uplifting to say the least. I recommend it to all scholars of philosophy and missiology.What a brilliant work of art!
