Editorial Reviews

Stephan Bevans
—Catholic Theological Union
"The authors of these essays point to the importance of culture in shaping church ministry and interpreting the gospel; more significantly, however, they point to the danger of culture for the church if it is not constantly critiqued by the gospel. This book is a significant contribution to the construction of a contextual theology in North America. Its message needs to be taken seriously by our churches, for its message may very well be the vision that can guide us as we enter a new century and a new millennium."
