Liberating The Gospel

Translating the message of Jesus in a globalised world

Liberating the Gospel is a major new book on Christian mission, which has become restricted by Western culture-bound interpretations of the Gospel, inhibiting the emergence of local, contextual theologies. It will empower the reader to overcome the apartheid between the academy and the congregation in suggesting ways in which cutting-edge biblical scholarship can be a positive and liberating force for Christianity in the 21st century.
