Check out the January 2015 issue of Evangelical Missions Quarterly (EMQ).
The subjects of orality, honor-shame, and story crafting are vast. There’s no way to everything in one article. However, I do hope this essay will serve as a starting point for practical reflection on the topic.
We need to have a good conversation about how we practically allow a cultural worldview to shape our the stories we tell.
Take a look at the EMQ article, pass it along to friends, and let me know what you would add to conversation. How have you allowed honor and shame to frame the way to craft the biblical stories (particularly among oral peoples)?
