Newbigin (1909-1998) begins the preface this way,
"This small book was originally published in Tamil for the use of church workers in the Tamil dioceses of the Church of South India. Those for whom it was intended are mostly village teachers of elementary grade, who--although without theological training--have to bear a heavy share of the responsibility for the pastoral care of several thousand village congregations in the Tamil country . . . I began writing it in Tamil but found that the work was proceeding too slowly and therefore completed it in English, and requested a friend to translate it. I have therefore tried to write the kind of English sentences that would go easily into Tamil, and have had all the time in mind the necessities of translation" (p. 7). (Newbigin describes more fully the villages he had in mind when he wrote this in chapter 7 "Kanchi: The Villages" of his Unfinished Agenda: An Updated Autobiography).
The Duke Divinity School students who read this book for Wainwright's course noted how valuable Newbigin's little book was for helping them review theology. They also appreciated the breadth of his description of what the cross accomplished. Newbigin cannot be pinned down as merely "Reformed"--his work has traces of Wesleyan, Orthodox and Catholic theology as well.Read more ›
