One Gospel for All Nations: A Practical Approach to Biblical Contextualization

Jackson Wu

William Carey, 2015


The Bible tells us what to believe--the gospel. Did you know that it also shows how to contextualize the gospel? In One Gospel for All Nations, Jackson Wu does more than talk about principles. He gets practical. When the biblical writers explain the gospel, they consistently use a pattern that is both firm and flexible. Wu builds on this insight to demonstrate a model of contextualization that starts with interpretation and can be applied to any culture. In the process, he explains practically why we must not choose between the Bible and culture. Wu highlights various implications for both missionaries and theologians.


Jackson Wu has worked as a church planter and now teaches theology and missiology for Chinese pastors.


“Contextualization should be practical, not pragmatic; theological, not theoretical.

Wu gives his readers a model for contextualization that seeks to let the whole biblical narrative speak with a specific cultural accent, while at the same time interpreting and critiquing contemporary contexts through the lens of Scripture. But the real strength of this book comes when Wu shows us how his model works out in practice, as he beautifully retells the biblical story for Chinese people.”
