Summary
"The Bible on Culture provides an organized, systematic review of inculturation from a biblical point of view. At the dawn of Christianity's third millennium 'inculturation' has become a missiological catchword. However, as Lucien Legrand argues, cultures are manifold; and the forms of interaction with, within, and between cultures are many. The interaction of God's word with cultures can take many forms: emergence and immersion; dialogue and condemnation; even love and hate. The Bible epitomizes the diversity of these forms of encounter between faith and culture." "The Bible on Culture finds the biblical position between faith and culture as one of bipolar tension, between belonging and dissenting, between incarnated openness and prophetic challenge. It offers a unique and provocative new view for scholars and students of theology, mission, and history." --Book Jacket
