John Calvin's Contextualization

This is a great listen. I found it on my buddy Nick's blog.

You might have heard this before. Or you might not have. Keeners like Lowonthego will find nothing new here.

The "new wind of doctrine" that he refers to at the beginning, is the idea making the gospel revevant to the postmodern culture. This is what he refers to as contextualization.

When he says that John Calvin was a contender, he is refering to what we contend for as Christians. That is, we contend for the deity of Christ, Christ's penal substitutionary death, and his resurrection, you know, all that great stuff. Contextualization is bringing true doctrine into context.

What he means by missiology is philosophy or method of Christian missions.

I think it will encourage you. God does impossible things.
