Christianity in Culture: A Study in Dynamic Biblical Theologizing in Cross Cultural Perspective
"This new edition includes reflections on themes that have emerged since the book's initial publication in 1979. It takes on squarely the task of helping both outsiders and insiders understand the hidden language of culture and learning how culture affects a people's appropriation of the person and message of Jesus Christ."--BOOK JACKET.
