From Back Cover Blurb:
“This book ventures to clarify from a nonwestern perspective,
issues in reading, appropriating, and transmitting the faith.” (Melba Maggay)

Dr. Maggay has assembled a fine multi-disciplinary roster of ‘insiders’ to present an Asian commentary on aspects of contextualization of the Gospel. In doing so, these writers surface some conceptual tools useful to further develop
