Editorial Reviews

Review

Wu gives his readers a model for contextualization that seeks to let the whole biblical narrative speak with a specific cultural accent, while at the same time interpreting and critiquing contemporary contexts through the lens of Scripture. But the real strength of this book comes when Wu shows us how his model works out in practice. 

Dean Flemming, PhD, author of Contextualization in the New Testament
 
In Wu's book, we get not only theory about contextualization but a practical model for working out the most significant theme in the Bible: gospel. Wu even takes us to the heart of the matter when he shows what gospel looks like in the Chinese culture.

Scot McKnight, PhD, author of The King Jesus Gospel
What one sees in the book is precisely what should happen: sound biblical and theological reflection in the context of practice. As he seeks to answer the concrete question "how do we contextualize the gospel?" he thinks more deeply and not less.

Michael Goheen, PhD, author of The Drama of Scripture

I would commend this book to anyone who wants to understand the Bible more fully or to communicate its message more clearly to others, locally or internationally. For those working in honor/shame cultures in particular, Wu's work is essential reading.

David W. Bennett, DMin, PhD, The Lausanne Movement 

Wu's book calls us into a serious reflection in the work of contextualization and meaningful presentation of the Gospel. Wu offers a timeless perspective that is both theological and practical.

Rev. Samuel E. Chiang, President and CEO, Seed Company
