Lesslie Newbigin, Foolishness to the Greeks: The Gospel And Western Culture

If I could require one book to introduce Christians to the prospect of cultural engagement, this is it.  This incredible book was written in 1986. Dated, some might say. I don’t think so. As with N. T. Wright there are so many other books by Newbigin that have influenced me, but this was the starting point. Lesslie Newbigin — philosopher, theologian, pastor, and missionary to India for most of his life — is quite simply incredible talking about how to live and think as vibrant Christians in a modern, postmodern, secular culture that resists our intrusion.
