The Global Gospel, Werner Mischke
ISBN 9780984812851

The Global Gospel describes how the honor/shame dynamics common to the Bible and many Majority World societies can be used to contextualize the gospel of Christ so it will be more widely received. The Global Gospel impacts many of the basics — how we read the Bible, how we preach the gospel, how we understand our mission, how we train leaders, how we collaborate in the global church. The Global Gospel will stretch your understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ by uncovering a major blind spot in Western theology, namely, honor and shame.
