Editorial Reviews


"This is a book of dazzling breadth and truly remarkable depth of scholarship. It offers a foundational approach that, if taken seriously, will influence mission studies in profound and significant ways." (Stephen B. Bevans, professor emeritus, Catholic Theological Union)

"Henning Wrogemann's Intercultural Hermeneutics, the first in a groundbreaking three-volume introduction to mission studies, is a remarkable study of a key advance in the study of world Christianity. Refusing to avoid the difficult questions of culture, syncretism, inculturation, and identity, Wrogemann presents the reader with a kaleidoscope of expressions and themes found within the world Christian communion and with positive methodological steps by which this diversity might be understood in its difference. The more theoretical considerations, focused on semiotics, discourse, and cultural theory, are amply illustrated with living examples of intercultural encounter. A range of voices and church bodies all contributes to a vision remarkable in scope, which directs our attention to the gospel in its movement across every boundary. This three-volume series will prove to be a landmark in the study of mission." (John G. Flett, Pilgrim Theological College, author of Apostolicity)

"This comprehensive study of the emerging field of intercultural theology charts a pathway for discussing both normative and descriptive issues arising from cultural difference. Wrogemann carefully builds a theoretical structure using Western philosophical hermeneutics, theologies, and anthropologies. He then shows how that framework can facilitate conversation among theologians and mission partners on seemingly incommensurable issues such as demon possession, healing, syncretism, and gender theologies. A rich dialogue with African theologians on critical topics such as inculturation, Christology, and contextuality establishes the veracity of this approach, allowing for a diversity of expressions of Christianity from around the world. This well-crafted work promises to become definitive for global discourse in intercultural and mission studies." (Frances S. Adeney, professor emerita of evangelism and global mission, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, board member, The American Society of Missiology, author of Women and Christian Mission)

"For some time now an important conversation on mission studies and intercultural theology has been developing in Germany that is largely unknown in the English-speaking world. In this extensive study (the first of three volumes) Henning Wrogemann has provided a valuable introduction to these conversations. His proposal of intercultural hermeneutics as a comprehensive method that accounts for culture as a complex field of action where actors appropriate the gospel in multiple contexts, along with the case studies he provides, offers fruitful suggestions of ways mission theology in the West can move beyond the impasse of current discussions of contextualization." (William Dyrness, Fuller Theological Seminary, author of Insider Jesus)

"Intercultural Theology, Volume 1: Intercultural Hermeneutics is filled with insight, erudition, and analytical wisdom. In this fine book, Henning Wrogemann lays a firm foundation for two more volumes that together with this one introduce the field of intercultural theology/mission studies. The comprehensiveness of the vision on offer is impressive, as Wrogemann ranges widely across theological disciplines, cultural studies, postcolonial scholarship, and discourse theory. Many examples drawn from the experience of the church in Africa in particular enhance the accessibility of what remains throughout a substantive study of world Christianity and ecumenical theology." (Stanley H. Skreslet, F. S. Royster Professor of Missions, Union Presbyterian Seminary, Richmond, Virginia)
