$34.99

Paperback

"The literature on contextual theology and situational ethics now has a standard to rise to."
Lamin Sanneh D. Willis James Professor of Missions and World Christianity, Yale University

Gospel, Culture and Transformation explores the practice of mission especially in relation to transforming cultures and communities. Mission as Transformation has become a mainstream definition of mission in orthodox Christian circles, especially in the Two-Thirds World and among those involved in ministry with the poor. Vinay Samuel has played a leading role in developing this understanding of mission which he defines as follows: "Transformation is to enable God's vision of society to be actualised in all relationships, social, economic and spiritual, so that God's will may be reflected in human society and his love be experienced by all communities, especially the poor.”

Christian faith is faith in the incarnation of God in a particular place in history so all theology should have to do with the particular. This work studies mission in the work of the leading Indian Mission Theologian, Canon Dr Vinay Samuel between 1984-1996. It is taken from the author's larger work Seeking the Asian Face of Jesus (Oxford, Regnum, 1997). A companion volume, Mission as Transformation, is edited by Vinay Samuel and Chris Sugden (Oxford, Regnum, 2000).
