Front Cover

"How can the Christian faith be translated into new languages and into new cultural forms? How much of Christian faith is culturally conditioned and how much is universal? These are some of the hermeneutical questions that arise as the church enters into its missional calling." "Brownson explores these and other questions in an effort to understand how the church can engage in cross-cultural hermeneutics in clear and effective ways. He looks at the way in which the New Testament writers functioned hermeneutically and how they attempted to interpret the gospel as it crossed cultural boundaries in the diverse contexts of the first century, concluding with a discussion of contemporary use of a missional hermeneutic."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
