Volume 13: Contextualization and Syncretism: Navigating Cultural Currents

Edited by Gailyn Van Rheenen

“Culture’s influence upon Christianity is easier to discern in retrospect than in prospect. If history is our guide, one thing is sure: This age will be as syncretistic as any other… How is the gospel being contextualized in the contemporary world? To what degree are these new contextualizations syncretistic? This book attempts to answer these questions by defining and analyzing contextualization and syncretism.”–Gailyn Van Rheenen
