"What would be involved in a genuinely missionary encounter between the gospel and this modern western culture?" -Lesslie Newbigin

What is the gospel?

“The content of the gospel is Jesus Christ in the fullness of his ministry, death, and resurrection. The gospel is this and not anything else.

Jesus is who he is, and though our perceptions of him will be shaped by our own situation and the mental formation we have received from our culture, our need is to see him as he truly is. This is why we have to listen to the witness of the whole Church in all places and ages.” (153)
“It is the experience of the younger churches of the East and South which has alerted us to this domestication of the gospel in our culture.” (152)
