Communicating God's Word in a Complex World reaches out to the growing number of missionaries, pastors, Bible translators and teachers, mission and theological educators and students dealing with communicating the gospel. This is increasingly difficult in today's pluralist and global contexts. What was God's message, and how has spreading that message changed through the generations? The answer to that question requires a hermeneutical process that seeks to understand the biblical text and the context in which it was originally presented. R. Daniel Shaw and Charles Van Engen say that contemporary proclaimers of God's word can model their approach after that of the writers of scripture, who reinterpreted and restated their received texts for their audiences. Thus, Gospel communication is impacted by the way humans know God. This, in turn, is informed by contexts. Communicating God's Word in a Complex World draws lessons from the biblical authors themselves as a guide for how best to present God's message.

Review:

...offers a timely and important account of the current policy climate and of the unfortunate consequences it inflicts on disadvantaged children and thier teachers. (Journal Of Children and Poverty)

stimulating and practical work.... (Mission Studies)

Shaw and Van Engen have addressed many issues that are germane to communicating the gospel in the context of societal and cultural pluralism. Accordingly, this book warrants a careful reading. (Kenneth McElhanon, Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics)
