Eternal Word and Changing Worlds: Theology, Anthropology, and Mission in Trialog
Conn, Harvie M.
For the interested reader, I offer the same suggestion I give my students: don't feel guilty about beginning with the third section of the book. While you may miss some of the background and nuances, you can easily begin with chapters six and seven, then go back to read the first five chapters of the book. This reading strategy may allow you to understand why Conn does what he does in the first two sections. Moreover, seeing where he ultimately heads will give you categories and important themes to help you read the admittedly dense first two sections.
I cannot recommend this book strongly enough for anyone who is interested in thinking critically about his or her setting and wrestling with the question of how best to present the gospel in an increasingly culturally-complex world. - Michael B.
