About the Author:

A. Scott Moreau spent fourteen years on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC), ten years in Africa. He directed a regional team of CCC staff in Swaziland and taught general science in a Swazi public high school for two years. After graduate work at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School he taught at Nairobi International School of Theology for over seven years. Dr. Moreau returned to the United States in 1991 to accept a position at Wheaton College, currently teaching in the Missions and Intercultural Studies Department.

Review:

"A contemporary, nuanced account of evangelical contextualization models fills a great need not only for missiologists and missionaries, but also among theologians and biblical scholars. Scott Moreau is a trustworthy guide, and his research will raise awareness of authentically global theology while further informing current hermeneutical discussions." (Daniel J. Treier, Professor of Theology Wheaton College 2012-12-01)

"One shouldn't study contextualization without access to Moreau's work." (Paul W. Shea, Associate Professor of Missions Houghton College 2012-12-01)

"A way forward--a map--for evangelical intercultural workers to navigate the often uncertain terrain of contextualization." (Edward Smither, Professor of Intercultural Studies Columbia International University 2012-12-01)

"A very thoughtful treatment of one of the most important and controversial issues of the day--contextualization." (Geoff Tunnicliffe, CEO/Secretary General World Evangelical Alliance 2012-12-01)

Book Description Kregel Publications,U.S., United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Contextualization is the art of translating ideas into a particular situation, place or culture. It is fundamental to communication, which makes contextualization essential in missions. This textbook pulls together and maps the variety of evangelical approaches to contextualization. Introductory classes on contextualization and missionary preparation institutes will appreciate this valuable textbook. In section one, Moreau explores foundations that make it possible to see the variety of evangelical models more clearly. He looks at the ways evangelical models have been characterized in the literature, and he highlights the main concerns of evangelicals in their contextualizing efforts. Moreau explains several guiding ideas and analytic tools that show how evangelicals `lean into` contextualization.In section two, Moreau describes how evangelical models of contextualization can be split into four primary categories based on the directional flow of each: linear, dialogical, cyclical (spiral or helix), and organic. For each category, Moreau explains what he mean by the category name, portrays one or more models from the category, and presents selected contextual practices that evangelicals use which fit the category. This arrangement makes categorization easier than other options and does not frame the models in ways that bias their evaluation.Contextualization in Missions will guide mission-minded to an informed plan for spreading the gospel effectively. While written with a theoretical perspective, Contextualization in Missions also provides real-world examples to provoke both thought and action. Seller Inventory # AAS9780825433894
