The Global Gospel describes how the honor/shame dynamics common to the Bible and many Majority World societies can be used to contextualize the gospel of Christ so it will be more widely received. The Global Gospel impacts many of the basics -- how we read the Bible, how we preach the gospel, how we understand our mission, how we train leaders, how we collaborate in the global church. The Global Gospel will stretch your understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ by uncovering a major blind spot in Western theology, namely, honor and shame. You'll be led on a journey beyond a legal framework of the gospel -- to one that is "legal plus regal." How you communicate the gospel and live out the gospel -- locally and globally -- may well be transformed. The Global Gospel is a call for theological dialog and missional creativity rooted in the ancient paths of Scripture and the relational honor of our King. You and your team will be challenged to reconfigure what you do and expand what you believe is possible in our Lord's Great Commission.
Werner Mischke is Executive Vice President and Director of Training Ministries for Mission ONE.
Founded by Bob Schindler in 1991, Mission ONE trains and mobilizes the Church, focusing on cross-cultural partnerships to engage the unreached and serve the poor and oppressed.
"Biblically based and well researched, The Global Gospel is a compelling read that helps frame the gospel in the unique social dynamics of honor and shame—something we in the West so often miss. This is more than a book. It is a full-fledged course on biblically based cross-cultural communication containing graphics, charts and diagrams which forcefully illustrate Mischke's insightful principles of sharing the gospel cross culturally."
