Liberating the Gospel

Translating the Message of Jesus Christ in a Globalised World
  • By David Smith
$20.29
Product Description

Liberating the Gospel is prefaced by Tom Wright's claim that Christians have for too long read scripture with nineteenth-century eyes and sixteenth-century questions, and that it is urgently necessary they learn to read with first-century eyes and twenty-first-century questions. The central section of the book concentrates on reading the narratives of the Galilean ministry of Jesus within their first century context, then exploring Paul's mission in the setting of the urban and imperial world of Rome, before offering reflection on the Apocalypse in the changed world following the destruction of Jerusalem. Smith then concludes his treatise facing the twenty-first-century questions, seeking to build a hermeneutical bridge to our globalized world. As a whole, this major book on Christian mission aims to contribute toward an understanding of how the dynamic message of Christ might be liberated to be heard as genuinely good news today, in the process potentially transforming Christianity, provided there is willingness to face opposition from a world resistant to the exposure of its injustices.
