n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - The Vulnerable power of worship : A Study of a power approach to contextualization in Christian mission, Mats Rydinger : book review




In this book the author (a chaplain at Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden) studies contextualisation through a practice approach. The first part of the book focuses on the way necessitates a local and situational approach to mission that exposes a vulnerable centre, over against a traditional sender-receiver approach to mission, based on a privileged centre. The idea of a vulnerable centre emphasises that our understanding of God and Christian tradition is always partial, incomplete, and fragmentary. In a dialectical encounter with the 'other', that is, other religions, as well as those outside the church, this understanding should be complemented.
