Cross-Cultural Paul: Journeys To Others, Journeys To Ourselves
Charles H. Cosgrove, Herold Weiss, and K. K. (Khiok-khng) Yeo
From The Publisher:
The apostle Paul was a cross-cultural missionary, a Hellenistic Jew who sought to be all things to all people in order to win them to the gospel. In this provocative book Charles Cosgrove, Herold Weiss, and K. K. Yeo bring Paul into conversation with six diverse cultures of today: Argentine/Uruguayan, Anglo-American, Chinese, African American, Native American, and Russian. No other book on the apostle Paul looks at his thought from multiple cultural perspectives in the way that this one does. From the introduction outlining the authors cultural backgrounds to the conclusion drawing together what they learn from each other, Cross-Cultural Paul orients readers to the hermeneutical struggles and rewards of approaching texts cross-culturally.
