1. Good News in other Cultures: the cross-cultural task of Christian mission
In our fast-changing globalised world cross-cultural communication is an everyday necessity. When we meet up with our grandchildren we and they have to reach across the generations. When someone from Yorkshire meets someone from southern England cross-cultural communication takes place. In our modern world too we rub shoulders with people from all over the world with very different cultures and religious backgrounds. As Christians therefore we desperately need to learn all we can about cross-cultural communication if our witness is to scratch where people itch and we are to make the Gospel truly relevant good news.
2. One Way? Christian mission in a pluralist world.
Jesus’ unique claim to be the way, the truth and the life (John 14.6) sounds terribly politically incorrect in our pluralist world today. It can sound fearfully arrogant to declare that nobody can come to God the Father except through Jesus! Christians today face the challenge of remaining faithful in the confident message of the unique claims of Jesus Christ as the one true Lord and Saviour for the whole world. And yet at the same time we have to demonstrate truly loving humility and understanding with people who do not yet follow Jesus. “One Way?” touches in an easy-to-read way on this vital topic which I have dealt with more fully in “What about other Faiths?” (Hodder)
