Newbigin is always stimulating. This is the biggest collection of his thought in one place, though maybe not the place to start. Challenging and helpful throughout. Not a light read: those Brits! Unless you have a Brit background somewhere their prose can seem needlessly convoluted. At any rate, God sent us a prophet not yet fully heeded. The message can't yet be absorbed maybe. ( )

A congregational minister who became Bishop in the Church of South India: a lifetime of working in an ecumenical context where Christianity is a minority faith. Newbigin is becoming increasingly influential as the Western churches catch up with his experience. More critical of culture than Donovan and so an excellent complement. (Staff, 2008). ( )

How does the gospel relate to a pluralist society? What is the Christian message in a society marked by religious pluralism, ethnic diversity, and cultural relativism? Should Christians encountering today's pluralist society concentrate on evangelism or on dialogue? How does the prevailing climate of opinion affect, perhaps infect, Christians' faith? These kinds of questions are addressed in this noteworthy book by Lesslie Newbigin. A highly respected Christian leader and ecumenical figure, Newbigin provides a brilliant analysis of contemporary (secular, humanist, pluralist) culture and suggests how Christians can more confidently affirm their faith in such a context. While drawing from scholars such as Michael Polanyi, Alasdair MacIntyre, Hendrikus Berkhof, Walter Wink, and Robert Wuthnow, The Gospel in a Pluralist Society is suited not only to an academic readership. This heartfelt work by a missionary pastor and preacher also offers to Christian leaders and laypeople some thoughtful, helpful, and provocative reflections.… (more)
