This is week 1 of the book giveaway. Each of the next four weeks, I’ll discuss a different theme that follows the major sections of my new book Saving God’s Face: A Chinese Contextualization of Salvation through Honor and Shame. This week, someone will get 3 kindle books.
At the end of each week, I’ll pick a winner at random. I’ll give away books that are related to that week’s theme. If you want to defer for a later prize, you can do that…I’ll even add one more to help your odds, since you gave up your earlier prize.

This week’s theme is CONTEXTUALIZATION.
In the first big section of the book, I tackle these questions:
1) Do evangelicals assume the gospel?
2) Do evangelicals assume a meaning of contextualization?
3) Why have evangelicals not been able to make more progress in developing a unified theory and method of contextualization?
4) What is the relationship between the biblical text and the cultural context?
5) How does worldview affect contextualization?
6) What is “theological contextualization”?
7) What is the relationship between contextualization and interpretation?
8) How do we actually do contextualization?
This week’s posts will all concern contextualization. Leave your comments.
