what and from whence? – Lesslie Newbigin

From Foolishness to the Greeks:

What would be involved in a missionary encounter between the gospel and this whole way of perceiving, thinking and living that we call “modern Western culture”?

From whence comes the voice that can challenge this culture on its own terms, a voice that speaks its own language and yet confronts it with the authentic figure of the crucified and living Christ so that it is stopped in its tracks and turned back from the way of death?

From whence can the voice, not of doom but of deliverance, be spoken so that the modern Western world can hear it as the voice of its Savior and Lord?

These are some critical questions we must ponder, pontificate and ruminate on as we consider the spiritual paradigm shift we find ourselves in as followers of Christ.
