Product Description

The Bible on Culture provides an organized systematic view of inculturation from a bibical point of view. At the dawn of Christianity's third millennium "inculturation" has become a missiological catchword. However, as Lucien Legrand argues, cultures are manifold; and the forms of interaction with, within, and between cultures are many. The interactions of God's word with cultures cn take many forms: emergence and immersion; dialogue and condemnations; even love and hate. The Bible epitomizes the diversity of these forms of encounter between faith and culture.

Publisher's Description

Legrand examines the Bible's attitude to faith and culture in three parts: Israel and the nations; the cultural world of Jesus; and Paul and beyond. In each part he offers a synthesis of current research on the cultural ambience studied and discusses the core texts that show the Bible's stance toward culture.
