Synopsis: This book explores the idea of religious and theological interculturation from a Christian perspective as an approach to evangelisation. It explores aspects of culture and pluralism as these have been interpreted in post-Vatican II approaches to mission and evaluates interculturation from a number of perspectives, including language, symbol and metaphor. It draws insight from two New Testament encounters of Jesus with women, in Samaria (John) and in Tyre (Matthew and Mark), and goes on to explore some historical sources of interculturation in the missionary endeavours of the Jesuit Matteo Ricci. A particular case study is made of the contemporary experience of an African people (the Turkana of Kenya).
About the Author: The Author: Thomas Grenham received his interdisciplinary Ph.D. in religion and education from Boston College, Massachusetts in 2002 and a Masters from the same university in Pastoral Ministry (1997). He lectures in mission theology and pastoral ministry at the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy in Dublin, Ireland and is a member of St. Patrick?s Missionary Society. Drawing in his many missionary experiences on the African continent, Europe and North America, he has published in several theological and mission journals, including Pacifica: Australasian Theological Studies and Missiology: An International Review.
