For those of you who are not familiar with Saving God’s Face, you can check out my publications page, where I have links to a number of book reviews. Here is a short summary.

In short, Saving God’s Face helps readers use an honor-shame perspective to contextualize theology. By “honor and shame,” I refer to concepts like “face” and “collective identity.” After reading this book, you will better understand the meaning and significance of contextualization. I clarify how honor and shame shape Chinese culture as well as the cultures found within the Bible. Ultimately, the book develops a contextualized understanding of the doctrine of salvation, specifically focusing on the atonement and justification by faith.
